Operations over virtual machines

ISPSystem

All operations performed in VMmanager can be divided into main and additional. Main operations are called from the VM context menu, additional operations are called on the VM page.

Main operations


The main operations are available in Virtual machines → Menu or in Virtual machines → open a virtual machine page → Menu:

  • Start/Stop — start/stop a virtual machine;
  • Restart — restart a virtual machine;
  • Reinstall — install a new operating system on your virtual machine:
    1. Select an Operating system.
    2. Select Applications and scripts to be launched upon operating system installation. Scripts are to prepare virtual machines for operation. E.g. you can use them to install any software or set up configuration files. Read more in Scripts.
    3. Specify the VM password or click on Generate for an automatically generated password.
    4. To receive an email with the VM access settings, enable the Send email with password option.
  • Recovery mode — start/stop the recovery mode;
  • Mount ISO-image — mount your own ISO image to the VM;
  • Change password — create a new root password for the virtual machine;
  • VNC — use the web interface to connect to the working area of your virtual machine. Read more in VNC;
  • Run script — select a script that will be started on the virtual machine via the SSH protocol;
  • Notes — add notes to a virtual machine.

Additional operations


The additional operations are available in Virtual machines → open a virtual machine page.
