Before ASM Virtual Machines can be managed and operated via WebUI options, the VM instances must be created on the ASM using Microsoft Hyper-V. See PreRequisites - Managing the VM.
The ASM is able to host one or more Virtual Machine (VM) instances. A VM hosts 3rd party software or runs the Cloud Connector Edition developed by Microsoft. A VM instance is created by logging into the ASM via Remote Desktop Connection and running the Microsoft Hyper-V management platform. Each VM is operated and configured through ASM WebUI options and Hyper-V.
Through the ASM Virtual Machine (VM) WebUI options, the following basic functions are available:
- Deploy Hyper-V role on ASM
- List VMs (RAM and CPU assigned, Ethernet port attached)
- Operate VMs (Start, Shutdown, Reset, Turn Off)
- Modify VM basic operation settings: Name, Logical CPU, Assigned Memory, IP Settings (IP address, Mask, DNS)
- Monitor VM performance (CPU, RAM)
- Any modifications to the VM via Microsoft Hyper-V are displayed automatically in the WebUI.
- ASM VM Management is supported on the High-End ASM and Low-End ASM versions. For hardware details, see Common Hardware Modules.
