Delete the Lab option

Jump to solution

Hello Community,

I provisioned a Lab for the first time for Ansible course . I clicked "Provision Lab" and it took roughly 10 or so mins for all VMS to be in running state. I set the auto timer to 2 hrs and after 2 hrs all VMS changed to "stopped' state.

After that I clicked "delete" lab  and all VMs were deleted.

 

Few questions 

1. Whats the best approach. Should I leave the VMs in stopped state (and Lab in configured state) until I finish all Labs . 

2. I assume that once in stopped state , the timer is not running any more Smiley Happy ?

3. Probabaly It takes longer to provision new Lab then just running the reqired VMs. ? And apparently timer starts as soon as you click "provision" 

So in short what is the  best approach please

 

Thanks !

Hello @blanco750,

1. Yes, you should leave your VMs in the stopped state between two training sessions for one given training course. This way, any persistent configuration change is going to remain on your VMs. This allows you to go from one lab to the other smoothly. If one lab depends on the outcome of a previous lab, it wouldn't work after a fresh lab reprovisioning. I don't remember if DO407 has such dependant labs, but most Red Hat training courses have.

2. Indeed, in the stopped state, the timer is not running anymore.

3. As far as I have noticed, the overhead is pretty low for a provisioning compared to just starting the VMs. Indeed the timer starts as soon as you have clicked on the button 'Start lab' or 'Provision lab'.
