4.6.3. Rebuilding an instance to a state in a snapshot

In an event that you delete an instance on which a snapshot is based, the snapshot still stores the instance ID. You can check this information by using the nova image-list command and use the snapshot to restore the instance.

  1. In the dashboard, select Project > Compute > Images.
  2. Select the snapshot from which you want to restore the instance.
  3. In the Actions column, click Launch Instance.
  4. In the Launch Instance dialog, enter a name and the other details for the instance and click Launch.

For more information on launching an instance, see 「Launching an instance」.
