Option NamePossible ValuesRecommended Field TypeDescription
extra_ipsinteger >= 0Quantity, Dropdown

Determines how many extra IPs will be assigned to the server.

Info

It is recommended to set the config option Step to 1 when using the Quantity type.

The module allows for the removal of IP addresses one at a time. Using a Step value greater than 1 for a Quantity config option will disallow the removal of IP addresses through the module. This is because the decrement of a single IP address would no longer coincide with a valid Step as defined for the config option.

extra_diskinteger >= 0Dropdown

Sets the amount of extra disk space available for the server in GB (Gigabytes). This amount is added to the disk space currently set for the server's Plan.

e.g. "20" to indicate an additional 20 GB of disk space

extra_bandwidthinteger >= 0Dropdown

Sets the amount of extra bandwidth for the server in GB (Gigabytes). This amount is added to the bandwidth currently set for the server's Plan.

e.g. "5" to indicate an additional 5 GB of bandwidth

extra_cpusinteger >= 0Quantity, Dropdown

Sets the number of extra CPU cores available to the server. This number is added to the CPUs currently set for the server's Plan.

e.g. "2" to indicate two more additional CPUs

nodegroupinteger >= 1DropdownSets the node group from which SolusVM will determine a node to assign the server to. This overrides the Package settings for node or node group.
template???Dropdown

Sets the name/filename of the template to install on the server. This will override the Package setting for Template.
e.g. "centos-5.8-x86_64-solus-virtualmin"

Info

After a service has been created, updating the template will not affect the service. The service's template may only be changed from the Reinstall action.

Any pricing differences for the config option will still be incurred.

extra_memoryinteger >=0Dropdown

Sets the amount of extra 'guaranteed' memory in MB (Megabytes). This amount is added to the memory currently set for the server's Plan.
e.g. "512" to indicate an additional 512 MB of memory

extra_swapinteger >= 0Dropdown

Sets the amount of extra swap/burst memory in MB (Megabytes). The amount is added to the swap/burst memory currently set for the server's Plan.

e.g. "512" to indicate an additional 512 MB of swap

Info

Setting extra_swap requires that the extra_memory option be set as well.

If the server's plan does not provide any swap, and no extra swap has been set for this option, a value of 512 MB will be used by default.

OpenVZ:

  • Only OpenVZ supports changing swap space after the server has been created. Changing swap for other virtualization types will have no effect.
  • OpenVZ servers will always have their swap/burst set to the same value as memory. If any extra_swap is specified, it will be added onto this total.

 

Creating Packages

Note
titleNode Group Bug in SolusVM

There is a bug in SolusVM with the Default node group. If you select a node group for provisioning when creating a package, don't use the "Default" node group. First, create a new node group and assign your nodes to it in SolusVM. Then, select the new node group within the package.
