6.11. Managing Offline Services Configuration

Note

This feature is only supported for Virtuozzo 6 servers.

The Offline Services subtab available on clicking the Network tab on the corresponding physical server dashboard allows you to configure the offline services parameters that will be applied to all virtual environments on your physical server. Offline services ensure the manageability of your virtual environments from any browser at their IP addresses. Configuring the offline services is supported for the virtual environments with IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

By default, the vzpp service (for managing virtual environments via Virtuozzo Power Panel), vzpp-desktop service (for managing virtual environments via an encrypted VNC connection), and the vzpp-plesk service (for managing containers via the Plesk control panel integrated with Virtuozzo Power Panel) are enabled for all virtual environments on the physical server, which means that you can start using these offline services for managing virtual environments right after their creation. All offline services currently available on your physical server are listed in the Offline Services table:

Column Description
Name The name of the service.
Destination container ID The ID of the destination container where the requests to/from virtual environments are redirected.
Redirected Port The port number inside the container where the requests to/from virtual environments are redirected.
Global Shows if the service is enabled or disabled globally.

On the Offline Services subtab, you can manage your offline services as follows:

  • To subscribe all virtual environments on the physical server to an offline service, select the check box next to this service and click Enable Globally.
  • To unsubscribe all virtual environments on the physical server from an offline service, select the check box next to this service and click Disable Globally.
  • To create a new offline service on the physical server, click New Offline Service.
  • To edit an existing offline service, click its name in the table.
  • To remove an offline service that you do not need anymore from the physical server, select the check box next to this service and click Delete.
