Preparing for the Deployment

  • Create a key pair.

    To ensure system security, you are advised to use the key authentication mode to authorize the user who attempts to log in to a Linux BMS. Therefore, you must use an existing key pair or create a new one for remote login authentication.

  • Create a VPC.

    BMSs use networks, including subnets and security groups, provided by a VPC.

  • (Optional) Assign an EIP.

    If service VMs in the user-defined network need to provide services to the Internet, apply for an EIP. Otherwise, EIP is not required.

  • Register a private image.

    Before creating a XenServer BMS, you need to register the XenServer image file as a private image.

    For how to register a private image, see Register a Private Image.
