Change pending policies of a machine group on CloudLink Center

For a machine group, you can modify the key release policies that must be met for a machine in that group to start automatically.

Procedure

  1. Log in to CloudLink Center.
  2. Click Agents > Machine Groups.
  3. Select the check box next to the machine group whose key release policies you want to change.
  4. Click Actions > Change Pending Policies.
  5. In the Change Group Policies dialog box, change or specify the following policy setting values:
    • Require Manual Approval (default)—If the key release policy is not met, you must manually accept the startup.
    • Allow Automatically—If the key release policy is not met, the startup is allowed to continue. .
    • Allow If Address Is On The Same Subnet —This value is only available for the When a new IP address detected policy.

      If the IP address of the machine is different from the address stored in the CloudLink Center database, but remains in the same subnet (/24 mask), the startup is allowed to continue. The new IP address is recorded for this machine in the database.

      This option is useful when you know that the IP address of a machine may change. For example, in some cloud environments (such as Microsoft Azure), the public IP address of a machine may change when it is powered off and restarted. A new IP address is assigned from the same subnet as the previous address.

  6. Click Change.
