The article describes the details of configuring a tariff plan with DCImanager 6 processing module. Read more about general settings of tariff plans in How to create and configure a tariff plan.

To create a tariff plan for DCImanager 6:

  1. Go to ProductsTariff plansAdd button → Dedicated server.
  2. Specify tariff settings.
  3. Configure the content of the tariff plan: ProductsTariff plans → select the created tariff → Options button.


Tariff settings. "Main settings" section


Note:

Enable Create all add-ons option when creating the tariff. This is required for automatic adding of resources to the tariff content.

Dedicated server tariffs are linked to a specific existing server configuration. Configurations are generated in DCImanager 6 and contain details of servers hardware. If a server with such configuration is available, immediately after ordering the service, the process of server preparation and deployment begins.


"Main settings" section interface

Configuration — the list of available server configurations. The list of values is created automatically and includes all server configurations available in DCImanager 6.

OS templates — operating systems available within the tariff. When the processing module is connected in BILLmanager, DCImanager 6 provides the list of all operating systems.

Note

  1. If the list of OS templates is not displayed when creating a tariff, connect the template to the tariff manually: ProductsProduct typeDedicated serverParametersOperating systemValues → select template → Tariff plans → select tariff → Enable.
  2. To add a template for a tariff, go to ProductsProduct typeDedicated serverParametersOperating system Add specify the template settings. In the Internal name field, enter the name of the template from DCImanager.

Default domain template — the template used as basis to create the domain name, unless specified by the customer when ordering the service. The following macros can be used in this field:

  • @USERNAME@ — name of the current account user;
  • @TYPE@ — product type;
  • @ID@ — unique service ID.

For example, "@USERNAME@.example.com" was specified in "Default domain template". Username is "user". Unless the customer specifies the domain name when ordering the services, the domain name of "user.example.com" will be assigned to the server in DCImanager 6. 

Name server — domain name server for the free domain name. Read more in the article Name server for a free domain name. DCImanager 6.

When a dedicated server service is ordered, BILLmanager can provide customer a third-level domain name in the provider's domain zone. Unless the customer specifies the domain name when ordering, a subdomain in the provider's zone will be generated automatically by BILLmanager based on "Default domain template". This subdomain will be created automatically for the free domain at the domain name server. In this case, the subdomain's IP address will redirect to the server's IP address. 

Tariff plan contents


If integrated with DCImanager 6, the processing module supports the use of the following resources (internal resource name is specified in brackets):

  • control panel license (panel). Value type – enumeration;
  • bandwidth (bandwidth). Resource unit of measure – KiB, value type – integer number;

    Note:

    Specify unit of measure "KiB" to ensure correct operation of the "Bandwidth" resource: Products → Tariff plans → choose tariff → Options → Bandwidth → Edit → Tariff limits→ Unit of measure → KiB.

  • public IPv4 address (ip). Value type – integer number;

  • public IPv6 address (ipv6). Value type – integer number.

    Note

    DCImanager will assign IP addresses to the server before installing the OS.

    If you plan to provision servers with IPv6 addresses only, remove the "Public IPv4 address" resource from the contents. In this case, DCImanager will allocate an IPv4 address from the pool specified in the settings for the duration of OS installation. For more information on allocating IP addresses, see the article Integration with BILLmanager in DCImanager 6 documentation.

  • pool of IP addresses (ippool). The server will get an IP address from the pool selected when ordering. Value type – enumeration;

  • server VLAN (vlan_id). The server will be placed in the VLAN selected when ordering. Value type – enumeration.

You can connect "Bandwidth of dedicated servers" service to the tariff. See Bandwidth of dedicated servers for more information.
