Manages SoftLayer Virtual Guests.

softlayer\virtual_guest

Provides virtual guest resource. This allows virtual guests to be created, updated and deleted. For additional details please refer to API documentation.

Example Usage

Create a new virtual guest using the "Debian" image.

resource "softlayer_virtual_guest" "twc_terraform_sample" {
  name                     = "twc-terraform-sample-name"
  domain                   = "bar.example.com"
  image                    = "DEBIAN_7_64"
  region                   = "ams01"
  public_network_speed     = 10
  hourly_billing           = true
  private_network_only     = false
  cpu                      = 1
  ram                      = 1024
  disks                    = [25, 10, 20]
  user_data                = "{\"value\":\"newvalue\"}"
  dedicated_acct_host_only = true
  local_disk               = false
  frontend_vlan_id         = 1085155
  backend_vlan_id          = 1085157
}

Create a new virtual guest using block device template.

resource "softlayer_virtual_guest" "terraform-sample-BDTGroup" {
  name                            = "terraform-sample-blockDeviceTemplateGroup"
  domain                          = "bar.example.com"
  region                          = "ams01"
  public_network_speed            = 10
  hourly_billing                  = false
  cpu                             = 1
  ram                             = 1024
  local_disk                      = false
  block_device_template_group_gid = "****-****-****-****-****"
}

Argument Reference

The following arguments are supported:

  • name | string
    • Hostname for the computing instance.
    • Required
  • domain | string
    • Domain for the computing instance.
    • Required
  • cpu | int
    • The number of CPU cores to allocate.
    • Required
  • ram | int
    • The amount of memory to allocate in megabytes.
    • Required
  • region | string
    • Specifies which datacenter the instance is to be provisioned in.
    • Required
  • hourly_billing | boolean
    • Specifies the billing type for the instance. When true, the computing instance will be billed on hourly usage, otherwise it will be billed on a monthly basis.
    • Required
  • local_disk | boolean
    • Specifies the disk type for the instance. When true, the disks for the computing instance will be provisioned on the host which it runs, otherwise SAN disks will be provisioned.
    • Required
  • dedicated_acct_host_only | boolean
    • Specifies whether or not the instance must only run on hosts with instances from the same account
    • Default: nil
    • Optional
  • image | string
    • An identifier for the operating system to provision the computing instance with.
    • Conditionally required - Disallowed when blockDeviceTemplateGroup.globalIdentifier is provided, as the template will specify the operating system.
  • block_device_template_group_gid | string
    • A global identifier for the template to be used to provision the computing instance.
    • Conditionally required - Disallowed when operatingSystemReferenceCode is provided, as the template will specify the operating system.
  • public_network_speed | int
    • Specifies the connection speed for the instance's network components.
    • Default: 10
    • Optional
  • private_network_only | boolean
    • Specifies whether or not the instance only has access to the private network. When true this flag specifies that a compute instance is to only have access to the private network.
    • Default: False
    • Optional
  • frontend_vlan_id | int
    • Specifies the network VLAN which is to be used for the front end interface of the computing instance.
    • Default: nil
    • Optional
  • backend_vlan_id | int
    • Specifies the network VLAN which is to be used for the back end interface of the computing instance.
    • Default: nil
    • Optional
  • disks | array
    • Block device and disk image settings for the computing instance
    • Optional
    • Default: The smallest available capacity for the primary disk will be used. If an image template is specified the disk capacity will be be provided by the template.
  • user_data | string
    • Arbitrary data to be made available to the computing instance.
    • Default: nil
    • Optional
