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 https://juju.ubuntu.com/docs/constraints.html
