Creating an ECS Using the Unified CLI

The Unified CLI does not support ECS creation from disks. Instead, you can create an ECS using an image.


  1. Run the openstack port create command to create a port.
  2. Run the openstack server create command to create an ECS.


  1. Before creating an ECS, you need to apply for a port and create only one primary network interface card (NIC) for provisioning the ECS.
  2. Do not delete the image, network, subnet, and security group when you create an ECS.
  3. ECSs cannot be created in batches.
  4. If you fail to create an ECS or the created ECS is unavailable, delete it and perform the preceding operations to create another ECS.
