4.3. Connecting to Virtual Machines

Virtuozzo Cloud provides cloud images from OS vendors. By default, all cloud images have password login disabled in favor of key login.

4.3.1. Connecting to Virtual Machine via the VNC Console

Select a VM, and then click Console on its right pane. The console will open in a separate browser window. In the console, you can send a key combination to a VM, take a screenshot of the console window, and download the console log (refer to Troubleshooting Virtual Machines).

4.3.2. Connecting to Virtual Machine via SSH

Specify the username and VM IP address in the SSH terminal:

# ssh <username>@<VM_IP_address>

Linux cloud images have the default login, depending on the operating system, for example, centos or ubuntu. To connect to a Windows VM, enter the username that you specified during Cloudbase-Init installation.

If you have deployed a VM without specifying an SSH key, you also need to enter a password to log in to the VM.
