Tips

1. Note that two identical orders may result in assigning server with slightly different parameters.

It is the result of the way EasyDCIM server matching works. It matches a server basing on the resources and models mentioned in the order, without considering other resources.
While it attempts to find a server matching the order completely, in case it fails, server fulfilling more requirements than others will be assigned.
More information about server provisioning flow can be found on EasyDCIM documentation page.

2. As this server supports templates system, any changes made in the server's templates files will be saved after the upgrade process.

Common Problems

1. When you have problems with connection, check whether your SELinux or firewall does not block ports.
