Viewing the BMS Allocation Status


After allocating a BMS, you can query the BMS allocation status in the Task Status area. BMS allocation includes subtasks, such as allocating BMS resources and binding EIPs.

The status may be one of the followings:

  • Processing: The system is processing the task.
  • Failed: The system fails to process the task. If a task fails, the system automatically rolls back the task and Failed is displayed on the BMS console.

This section describes how to query BMS allocation status and the information displayed in the Task Status area.


  1. Log in to the management console.
  2. Click in the upper left corner and select the desired region and project.
  3. Under Computing, click Bare Metal Server.

    The BMS console is displayed.

  4. Task Status is displayed on the right of common operations, such as Start, Stop, Restart, and Delete. After you allocate a BMS, the Task Status area will show the allocation status.
  5. Click the number displayed in the Task Status area to view details about the BMS allocation status. The tasks in Processing and Failed statuses are displayed.

    If Failed is displayed for a task in the Task Status area, but the BMS list shows the allocated BMS, handle this issue by following the instructions provided in Why Is Failed Displayed for a BMS Allocation Task But the BMS List Shows the Allocated BMS?
