This section describes how to create an ECS using an uninitialized private image registered from an uninitialized external image file.
An uninitialized private image registered from an external image file is available.
Alternatively, click the image name. In the upper right corner of the image details page, click Apply for Server.
During ECS creation, you must bind an elastic IP address to the ECS so that you can upload the Guest OS driver installation package to the ECS or download the Guest OS driver installation package from the ECS.
For detailed operations, see the Elastic Cloud Server User Guide.
If the image file has Cloudbase-Init installed and configured, log in to the ECS using the password as prompted. If Cloudbase-Init has not been installed, log in to the ECS using the password or certificate contained in the image file.
To ensure ECS security, each ECS is added to the default security group after it is created. This security group denies all access requests to it. Therefore, you need to add inbound rules to allow access to the ECS. For details, see the security group configuration.
It is recommended that you disable your antivirus and intrusion detection software. You can enable the software again after the Guest OS driver is installed.
For operations of installing the Guest OS driver, see Optimization Process.
If the ECS meets the preceding requirements, the private image is available. You can choose to perform the operations in (Optional) Clearing the Environment.
