  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We have deployed private cloud with system center products using Cloud Services Process Pack and we have deployed Service Manger portal for VM provisioning in Cloud

    The Service Manger portal does not display VM console and VM details

    I have following queries

    • How to take remote console of VM deployed by end user through service manager portal
    • How will user come to know quota limit utilized in cloud under his account
    • The VM are deployed through SCSM portal are in shutdown state how to auto start the VM after provisioning

    Please help since we are not able to find any solution for the above

  • The component of System Center that is capable to give console access to your VMs, is App Controller.

    Once the user are logged in here, they should see their quota, limits and resources available.

    Yes, the VMs are powered off by default when using the CSPP. You can edit the runbooks and add a task that will start them after provisioning.

    For your information:

    Many things has changed since the release of Cloud Service Process Pack. A new set of tools are provided with Windows Azure Pack to have a streamlined Infrastructure as a Service offering within the enterprise. Windows Azure Pack will leverage VMM (in the same way as SCSM does) but in conjunction with SPF (component within Orchestrator) to give you a framework that is identical to Windows Azure (Microsoft's own cloud) running on-premise.
