I am testing out MAAS in a demo environment of differently specified machines and would like the bootstrap node to be the smaller of the machines. Is there a way to specify the bootstrap node?

There is no current way to do this unfortunately, you need to wait for the constraints work to be finished.

[Edit: 2012-10-17] The contraints work is now finished for 12.10. You can specify cpu and memory requirements using juju. See

It would be helpful if you could edit your answer with more information What is the constraints work? where can we review the status of this work etc? Thanks – stephenmyall Aug 15 '12 at 10:12
Thanks. I eventually did this by starting fresh and only adding the bootstrap node to the MAAS and then bootstrapping. But I ended up with plenty of other issues which are likely due to the current maturity level of Juju / MAAS. – Andy Shinn Aug 15 '12 at 15:41
