Cloudman - Can you label volumes after user specifies the volume size they want?

rssetia
Initially only one volume is shown on Amazon's EC2 management console. Then, after the user goes into the instance's URL and logs into Cloudman, they are prompted with a box called "Initial cluster configuration" where they specify the size of the volume they want. THEN, three nameless volumes are produced. 

The problem here is that the volumes are nameless, and this makes cleanup on Amazon's EC2 console difficult since we have no way of knowing these volumes are related to the Galaxy cloudman AMI. 

I am wondering if there is a way to pass a script to Cloudman that it will run once the volumes are created (ie. After the user goes to the URL and specifies the volume size they want). The script will be used to add name= tags for each of the three additional volumes. 

Thanks.

Yes, this is good suggestion. The good news is that the functionality is already implemented in the soon-to-be-released version of CloudMan.
