            Bug ID: 213396
           Summary: official FreeBSD vm image not runing on openstack
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-STABLE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: bin

I am trying to run FreeBSD-11.0 on ibm bluemix cloud virtual machine(openstack
based), but it thow error: "Flavor's disk is too small for requested image."
I am trying to use official image from
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/releases/VM-IMAGES/11.0-RELEASE/amd64/Latest/FreeBSD-11.0-RELEASE-amd64.qcow2.xz
of course i unxz it.
Maybe you have created big image file more than 20gig and maybe better to
delete swap partition from image.
Many clouds providers are using small openstack flavor with 20gig max disk
size, but your official image seems bigger because of it i can not run official
image on ibm bluemix, hp cloud or any other openstack cloud provider.
Moreover it is better is you will publish unxz image of vm because openstack
can not understand xz archive and now evry cloud user must download image from
your ftp than unxz it and than upload it to openstack cloud provider. But if
you publish image in qcow2 format(not zipped with xz) evry cloud provider can
once download your image and than just use it for all who put same url. It will
realy slow down your server load.
