Hi Greg -
This is not so well documented in Grizzly, but see  folsom docs:

to boot from a volume:
nova boot --flavor <f> --block_device_mapping vda=<vol_id>:::0

to boot from a snapshot of a bootable volume:
nova boot --flavor <f> --block_device_mapping vda=<snap_id>:snap::0

Subject:	[Openstack] Booting from a volume snapshot via the CLI

I can't figure out what options I need to use with "nova boot" in order to
boot from a bootable volume snapshot.  Can somebody hit me with the clue
stick please?  Thanks in advance.
