Using Nova/Supernova to increase quota allotments in Openstack

I noticed there were some changes to the way we used openstack quotas today. So I had to do it the manual way! Please note that this can only be done thru the Admin API function, so if you are a Rackspace customer you would need to reach out to us to do this, unless you ran your own openstack or devstack implementation in-house.

Here is how I achieved it:

supernova {environment} {action} --option {number} {customer_ID}
supernova lon quota-update --instances 250 10010101

There is a lot of different commands available, use nova help to get more detail

 supernova lon help quota-update
