Detailed server information

[Update: November 16, 2018]

For the created server, you can perform operations such as confirming basic information (plan, creation date, etc.), configuring settings for the loaded NIC, and inserting ISO images at the detailed information screen.

Display the details screen

At the server list display screen, double-click the server row for which you want to display detailed information, or insert a check into the checkbox and then click [Details] at the top-right. (enabled if a check is inserted into the checkbox for one server/if multiple servers are selected, it is not possible to click the [Details] button.)

The details screen for the applicable server is displayed. From the server list on the left of the details screen, you can switch to the details screen of another server existing in the same zone.

Important

Only servers existing in the selected zone are displayed on the list. You can confirm the zone in which operation is currently being performed and switch to other zones from the zone switch menu at the top-left of the control panel screen.

Activated state [Available] is displayed when the user can operate the server. In some cases, a different message will be displayed if operation is not possible for some reason.
Date of creation Displays the date and time of server creation.
*When the plan is changed, the resource ID is also changed. In this case, the original server creation date/time is not inherited; instead, the date/time for creation of the new resource ID is used.
Date of modification Displays the date/time of the last change to server information.
Date of status change Displays the date/time of the last changes to status information.
Hypervisor The version of the hypervisor (virtualization mechanism) of the host server run by this server.
The version increases when new functions are added, when measures are implemented for security measures, etc. In principle, newly run servers are stored in the host server possessing the newest verion in the same zone.
Storage host Name of the host server running this server.
Generally speaking, plan maintenance for responding to hardware malfunctions, etc., is performed by host server unit. Therefore, this is one item for judging whether or not the customer server will be affected.
Maintenance information Displayed when the server is scheduled to be down for maintenance of the host server operated by the applicable server.
*This item is not displayed when no maintenance is scheduled.
