At this step you need to indicate your virtual server's properties, such as label, compute resource, password and other. You can create a virtual server having specified only the required parameters and configure it later.

Specify the following virtual server properties:

  • Label - the label of the virtual server. The required parameter.
  • Hostname - the hostname of the virtual server. The required parameter. The hostname should consist of letters [A-Z a-z], digits [0-9] and dash [ - ]. For more info on hostname validation, refer to RFC standard documentation.

    Particular characters are not allowed for Windows-based virtual servers:

    • percent sign [%]
    • double quotation marks [“]
    • brackets [<,>]
    • vertical bar [|]
    • caret [^]
    • ampersand [&]
    • parentheses [(,)]
  • Time zone - set the time zone for the virtual server. This parameter is applicable only to Windows XEN and KVM virtual servers.

    Currently, the time zone is set at the Compute resource side only. Therefore, users need to set the target time zone inside a Windows VS manually. Setting correct time zone at the Compute resource side helps to keep correct time inside a VS after starting it if time synchronization is not completed for some reason.

  • Compute zone - the compute zone to build the VS on.
  • Compute resource - the specific compute resource to build the VS on.  Compute resource may be selected automatically according to the set provisioning type.

    When the Show Compute resources on Virtual Machine creation permission is enabled (so that user cannot select the compute resource, but can choose the virtualization type), the compute resource that meets the Recovery type will be displayed in the compute resource drop-down box.

  • Password - a secure password for the VS. It can consist of 6-99 characters, letters [A-Za-z], digits [0-9], dash [ - ] and lower dash [ _ ], and the following special characters: ~ ! @ # $ * _ - + = ` \\ { } [ ] : ; ' , . ? /. You can use both lower- and uppercase letters.

  • Password confirmation - repeat the password to confirm it.
  • Encrypt password - move the Encrypt Password slider to the right, to encrypt your password, then enter an encryption key in the field that appears.

Click Next to proceed to the following step of the wizard to specify the virtual server resources.
