Manage Instances

by Brian Banaszynski

From the Instances tab, users can perform the following instance (guest) actions:

  • Start
  • Stop
  • Reboot
  • Snapshot
  • Console
  • Delete
  • Additional Power Options
  • Instance settings
  • Refresh Status
  • Manage Volumes (More)

These options are available after selecting one or more instances.

It is important to note that an instance snapshot, is a complete copy of the VM. This applies to any instance snapshot operation, regardless of hypervisor. This differs from the snapshot functionality traditionally seen in VMware vCenter.
