To manage a smart server power options:
- Go to your Control Panel's Smart Server menu.
- Click the label of the smart server in question.
- Click the Tools button on the Smart server's screen to expand the Tools menu.
- The Tools menu enables you to perform the following power actions on smart servers (the exact list shown depends on the smart server status):
- Reboot Smart Server - powers off and then restarts the smart server.
Reboot in Recovery- powers off and then restarts the Smart Server Recovery mode with a temporary login ("root") and password ("recovery") for servers where password encryption is enabled. For servers with password encryption disabled, the root password will be used to reboot in recovery.
Windows smart servers boot from the Linux-based recovery template in a recovery mode. You need to log in as admin via SSH or VNC console, then mount a Windows system disk manually.
PLEASE NOTE: You cannot work with the "whole" disk (like
mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1) while mounting and checking block devices inside the recovery image, as Windows disk is splitted into partitions.
- Suspend Smart Server - stops a smart server, changes its status to suspended and disables all the other actions on SS, unless unsuspended.
- Shut Down Smart Server – pops up a dialog box, where you can either Shut Down SS (terminates the SS gracefully), or Power Off SS (terminates the SS forcefully).
- Startup Smart Server - queues a start-up action for a SS that's currently powered off.
- Startup on Recovery - starts the SS in recovery mode with a temporary login ("root") and password ("recovery").
Boot from ISO - boots the VS from an ISO. You can boot virtual servers from your own ISOs or the ISOs that are uploaded and made publicly available by other users. If you boot a VS from an ISO with the RAM requirement larger than the VS's RAM, the transaction will fail. Make sure that you have enabled the Any power action on own virtual servers and Allow own virtual servers to boot from ISO permissions for the user to have access to this feature.
As soon as you boot a VS from the ISO, OnApp cannot control any components (backups, networks, disks) !!! The only available actions will be start and stop a VS. Be aware, that all the contents of the disk will be deleted.
