Is it possible to specify a default volume name based off the host selected? Our typical volume names match the host name we are allocating volumes to and would be nice to have a default there to reduce one more step in the service.
Specifying default volume label based on the selected host is not supported in the built-in allocate fabric aware volumes service template. However you can extend existing capability by using service builder.
For instance to get a user specified host name and automatically set that as the volume labels, you can create a new service template which includes the allocate fabric aware volumes service as a component, and then add an extra component in front of it which takes host name input from the user, reformats as necessary, and then passes the information to the host name and volume label properties of the allocate fabric aware volumes service.
