root disk for instance


Thanks for your reply.
I'm referring this link
https://docs.openstack.org/mitaka/admin-guide/compute-images-instances.html
to understand about root disk. In this it is saying root disk will come
from compute node. What is the location of root disk on compute node?

If I want to keep all my vms on shared storage . How to configure it ?

Or If I want to keep all my vms on cinder volume. What will be the
configuration for it on nova and cinder?
