Starting DCS Instances


On the DCS console, you can start one or multiple DCS instances at a time.


This function is not supported by recent instances. You can only start old instances that have been stopped. Once started, these instances can only be restarted and can no longer be stopped or started.


The DCS instances you want to start are in the Stopped state.


  1. Log in to the DCS console.

  2. Click image1 in the upper left corner and select a region and a project.

  3. In the navigation pane, choose Cache Manager.

  4. On the Cache Manager page, select one or more DCS instances you want to restart.

  5. Click Start above the DCS instance list.

  6. In the Start dialog box, click Yes to confirm that you want to start the instances.

    • It takes 1 to 30 minutes to start DCS instances.

    • After DCS instances are started, their statuses change from Stopped to Running.


    To start a single instance, you can also click Start in the Operation column in the same row as the instance.
