Viewing Failures


The Failures area shows the tasks that failed to process due to an error, including the task name and status. Such information is displayed on the management console in one of the following scenarios:

Creation failures:

A task failed to process. For a failed task, the system rolls back and displays an error code, for example, Ecs.0013 Insufficient EIP quota. For instructions about how to handle the failure, see section How Do I Handle Error Messages Displayed on the Management Console?

Operation failures:
  • Modifying ECS specifications

    If an ECS specifications modification failed, this operation is recorded in Failures.

  • Automatic recovery enabled during ECS creation

    Automatic recovery is enabled during ECS creation. After the ECS is created, if the system fails to enable automatic recovery, this operation is recorded in Failures.

This section describes how to view failures.

  2. Click in the upper left corner and select the desired region and project.
  3. Under Computing, click Elastic Cloud Server.
  4. View failures on the right side of common operations, such as StartStopRestart, and Delete.
