Rebuilding a server replaces all of the data on an active server with either a different, new image or a previously saved image of this same server. The newly-rebuilt server will maintain the same IP address. This article describes how to rebuild a server.
Note that a saved image will have a minimum disk space requirement, and you will not be able to restore an image to a server that doesn't have a main disk of that size or larger. Performance Cloud Servers only take the system disk into account when restoring an image.
To rebuild a server using the New Cloud Control Panel, follow these steps:
Open the New Cloud Control Panel, and click Servers at the top of the page.
Click the Actions cog next to the server you want to rebuild and select Rebuild from Image.
A pop-over window appears with the Rackspace and Saved tabs.
Select an image and click the Rebuild Server button.
The server status will change to Rebuilding and will be unavailable during the rebuild process.
