We forgot to set this property on our image before creating several servers in our openstack cluster. I tried adding this property to the volume of one of the hosts and shutting it down / turning it back on, but it didn’t help.


I found this blog post showing one way that worked, but it requires manual database editing. I was hoping for something a bit less typo-prone, like something in the openstack cli.



I can automate the above with ansible if that’s the only way, but if someone has a better suggestion that doesn’t involve recreating our instances, I would appreciate it.
