Resizing a Cloud Server

The following command will show you your current servers, where <PROFILE> is the profile you're using (e.g., "dfw"):

$ supernova <PROFILE> list

Which should return something like the following:

+--------------------------------------+--------+--------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
|                  ID                  |  Name  | Status |                                       Networks                           |
+--------------------------------------+--------+--------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| ffffffff-ffff-ffff-ffff-ffffffffffff | Foobar | ACTIVE | public=x.x.x.x, 2001:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff; private=x.x.x.x |
+--------------------------------------+--------+--------+--------------------------------------------------------------------------+

Take note of the ID or the Name of the Cloud Server you wish to resize.

Next, you will need a list of flavors available to resize to (note: You cannot resize a "performance" flavor):

$ supernova <PROFILE> flavor-list

Which should give you an output like the following:

+------------------+-------------------------+-----------+------+-----------+------+-------+-------------+-----------+

Take note of either the ID or the Name of the flavor you wish to resize to (I suggest always using the ID).

The final step is to issue the resize command, where <SERVER> is the Name or ID of the Cloud Server in question, and <FLAVOR> is the Name or ID of the flavor you are resizing to:

$ supernova resize <SERVER> <FLAVOR>

That's it. After a few minutes, your Cloud Server should be resized to whatever flavor your chose.
