Restrictions and Limitations

  • Only Linux BMSs support remote login.
  • Only the user who creates a BMS or users with the Tenant Administrator or Server Administrator role can log in to the BMS remotely.
  • The remote login page does not support Chinese input or desktop GUI-based operations.
  • When you log in to a BMS remotely, shortcut keys such as Ctrl and Alt are not well supported. For example, if you enter Alt + ASCII code, multiple special characters are displayed.
  • If you select the key pair login mode when creating a Linux BMS, you must log in to the BMS using the key pair and set a password before you can remotely log in to the BMS. The detailed operations are as follows:

    Log in to the BMS using the key pair, switch to user root, and run the passwd command to set the password of user root.
