Manually Provisioning AWS VMs

You can manually provision AWS VMs from:

  • a template
  • a requested service or VM component

Note: Once a component in a service has been deployed, it's no longer possible to deploy at the service level; you must deploy at the component level.

Manually provision AWS VMs from a template

Access through:

Views > Inventory > Applications

or

Views > Service Requests > Request Details

Available to:

Administrator, Operator, Operator with Approval Access Rights

To manually provision an AWS VM from a template:

  1. From the Applications tree, select a VM template.
  2. Right-click and select Provisioning > Deploy to VM.
  3. Provide the required information in the Deploy to VM dialog.

Manually provision AWS VMs from requested services or VM components

Access through:

Views > Inventory > Applications

or

Views > Service Requests > Request Details

Available to:

Administrator, Operator, Operator with Approval Access Rights

To manually provision an AWS VM from a requested service or VM component:

  1. From the Service Requests page, select an approved service request and click Request Details.  
  2. In the request tree, select a service or a component and click Deploy.
  3. Provide the required information in the manual deployment wizard.
    • If you selected a service, the manual deployment wizard is called Deploy Service as Individual Components.

Note: When deploying an entire service, if the deployment of one or more components fails, Commander will still attempt to deploy other components in the service.
