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.
For detailed operations, see the Elastic Cloud Server User Guide.
If the image file has Cloud-Init installed and configured, log in to the ECS using the password as prompted. If Cloud-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. By default, a security group denies all access requests to it. Therefore, you need to add inbound rules to allow inbound access to the ECS from an external location. For detailed configurations, see the security group configuration for private clouds.
It is recommended that you disable your antivirus and intrusion detection software. You can enable the software again after Xen and KVM drivers are installed.
For operations of installing Xen and KVM drivers, 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.
