Vertically scale FreeIPA instances
If necessary, you can select a larger or smaller instance type for FreeIPA after the environment has been created.
If you are using an instance without ephemeral disks, you can scale up or down to a new instance with ephemeral disks; however, the reverse is not supported. You cannot start with an instance with ephemeral disks and move to an instance without ephemeral disks.
Vertical scaling is supported on AWS only. EBS-backed instances must be stopped before scaling. See Change the instance type in AWS documentation for more information.
- In the CDP main navigation menu, click Environments and select the environment that requires a larger FreeIPA instance type.
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the FreeIPA tab.
- Click Vertical Scaling.
- From the drop-down menu of available instance types, select the instance that you
want to scale to.
- Click Scale. You can monitor the action from the
Event History tab.Alternatively, you can use the CDP CLI to select a new instance for FreeIPA:
