Description

UUID

The Unique Identifier of the virtual machine

Name

The Name of the virtual machine. Defaults to the VM template name

Fully qualified domain nameOptionally enter the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the virtual machine. You can edit this value before you deploy the virtual machine. If you don't enter a FQDN, the platform will automatically generate one. The hostname will be the virtual machine name (format ABQ-uuid) or another Abiquo identifier (format ABQ-id). The domain will be the domain value of the private or external networks that the virtual machine belongs to, or localdomain. After you deploy the virtual machine, if you change the value in the operating system, then Abiquo will synchronize and obtain the new value.

Owner

The enterprise and user that owns the virtual machine

Guest initial passwordGenerate an initial root or Administrator password for the virtual machine and email it to the owner. You can change this value before you deploy the VM. See Guest setup guide

CPU

The number of CPUs. You may only change this value when the machine is undeployed or stopped or when using hot add/reconfigure. Requires the privilege to Edit virtual machine details. The virtual datacenter and enterprise allocation limits will be checked when you enter this number. The number of CPUs available in the hypervisors will be checked when the machine is deployed or restarted. You cannot enter or edit this value when the provider uses hardware profiles (public cloud or private cloud). In hardware profiles mode the read-only value of CPU displays below the hardware profile field

RAM

The amount of RAM. Select MB or GB. You may only change this value when the machine is undeployed or stopped, or with hot add/reconfigure. Requires privilege Edit virtual machine details privilege. The virtual datacenter and enterprise allocation limits will be checked when you enter this number. The number of CPUs available in the hypervisors will be checked when the machine is deployed or restarted. You cannot enter or edit this value when the provider uses hardware profiles (public cloud or private cloud). In hardware profiles mode the read-only value of RAM displays below the hardware profile field

Enable Remote AccessHypervisors with Remote Access Support only. Enable remote access on this virtual machine. If the virtual machine was created without remote access enabled on the hypervisor, it will be enabled. If you disable remote access, the configuration will remain but you cannot access it via the eye icon.

Remote access

Remote Access to the virtual machine by VNC may be Not Available, usually because the machine is not deployed. Otherwise, if you have the View datacenter details privilege, the Remote Access IP and Port will be displayed.

Cloud Admin can enable remote access for the Abiquo platform in Configuration view for machines created after it is enabled. The Remote Access IP address is the Remote Access IP you entered when you created the physical machine or the address of the Remote Access Proxy Server.

Remote Access Password

If Remote Access is available, you can set the password for Remote Access and mark the checkbox to Show password. Changes to the password will be effective immediately for the connection to this machine through the eye button on the VM control panel. To display the password, select the Show password checkbox

SSH user / passwordThe default user and password from the virtual machine template

Virtual Machine Keymap

ESX/ESXi only - If Remote Access is Available, you can select the keyboard type for remote access through the eye button. This configuration is not available for connections with the default noVNC client
