CloudLink pending machine policy

This topic provides information about the CloudLink pending machine policy.

The pending machine policy determines whether or not a machine is placed in the pending state when it connects to CloudLink Center for the first time. Or, when it connects from a network or location not previously associated with the machine. You can select to allow the machine to automatically register with CloudLink Center, or remain in the pending state and require manual approval.

The following pending machine policy is applicable only to Enterprise and Microsoft Azure and Azure Stack:

New Machine—If a new machine that has an approved IP address is added to CloudLink Center, you can choose to allow it to automatically (default) connect to CloudLink Center or require manual approval to connect to CloudLink Center.

This policy applies to VMs.

Change the pending machine policy the same way you change a key release policy. For more information, see Change key release policies of a machine group on CloudLink Center.
