Re: Update default template from CentOS 5.5 to CentOS 7


Not a dev here :) but from my point of view as a user - I would agree with
what Dag said - it is used mainly to validate ACS installation, otherwise
it is (will be) mostly useless for production - and that is anyway not the
goal of this template. - so again just to quickly spin a VM as proof of
successful install (or quickly spin apache/nginx for a demo of some network
function like port forwarding etc)

I would just advise on making sure that OS type (if you choose centos7) is
not Centos 7.0 since (at least in acs 4.8) this means IDE and intel NIC
(I'm on KVM).

Same was true with centos 6.0 OS type - all IDE/intel nic, while centos
6.1-6.5 OS types were properly VirtIO "hardware". I just assume in 4.11
there is also new centos 7.1-7.x as OS type with also VirtIO "hardware".

Hope that makes sense.

Cheers
