Abiquo compute resources include physical machines, blades on managed racks and machines in public datacenters. To manage compute resources, open a datacenter:
Here you can manage racks, machines and their virtual machines, and enable high availability of virtual machines.
Go to the Infrastructure View by clicking thebutton at the top of the main screen, select a datacenter in the list, and click the button to see the datacenter information. The PHYSICAL SERVERS list is on the left side of the datacenter pane.
Enter text in the search box at the top of the physical servers list to filter racks and only display the racks with names containing this text. To reset the filter and display all racks, clear the text and press enter.
|Gray||STOPPED||The machine is stopped; it does not respond to ping|
|Orange||PROVISIONED||The machine exists, but there is no connection to the hypervisor|
|Yellow||NOT MANAGED||The machine and hypervisor exist, but are not properly configured|
|Green||MANAGED||The machine and hypervisor are ready to deploy virtual machines|
The machine and hypervisor are ready but the machine has been disabled by the cloud administrator to prevent users from working with their virtual machines.
|Gray||UNLICENSED||There are not enough licenses for the cores in this virtual machine|
|Gray||HA IN PROGRESS||The machine and hypervisor are being used by the high availability process|
|Gray||DISABLED FOR HA||The machine and hypervisor have been disabled by high availability after restarting of virtual machines on another hypervisor|
|Pink||HALTED FOR SAVE||The machine, which belongs to a UCS rack, has been powered down by Abiquo. Therefore the machine is ready for power on under certain circumstances|
You can view the virtual machines created on different machines (or grouped by rack). The virtual machines can be viewed as a list of names or icons with each entry representing a virtual machine object.
A summary of the properties of a machine appears below the virtual machines pane when the user selects a virtual machine. This summary contains the information on the selected object. The virtual machine control panel contains the controls listed in the table below.
