Specifics of working with a boot disk
When creating a VM from a Container Optimized Image, take into account the following specifics:
- You can't create a boot disk from a disk snapshot.
- By default, you create a disk that is the same size as the image. However, since the purpose of a VM created from a Container Optimized Image is to run a Docker container, there may not be enough free space to deploy the Docker container. To avoid this, explicitly specify the required size of the boot disk using the
--create-boot-disk size=<disk size in GB>flag. The disk size must be at least 30 GB.
