Oct 10, 2014 Restore Micro BOSH from just its persistent disk
Micro BOSH can't be resurrected, can't be healed, and you cannot stop the VM and just restart it. Fortunately, you can always come back to the CLI and run
bosh micro deploy.
All you need is its persistent disk and you can manually resurrect/recreate a Micro BOSH. And a manual change to
Step 1, strip back the
bosh-deployment.yml so it only has the following keys in it:
--- instances: - :id: 1 :name: microbosh-aws-vpc :uuid: some-uuid :disk_cid: vol-db5d0797
All these keys are required.
Step 2, re-deploy the Micro BOSH and it will re-attach and mount the existing persistent disk and your Micro BOSH will be back in action!
bosh micro deploy <stemcell.tgz or AMI> --update-if-exists
