[Action of the Virtual Machine] Segregation of the Virtual Machine

Action of the Virtual Machine

Segregation of Virtual Machines

By using the virtual machine's segregation function, you can specify that two virtual machines will not start up on the same hypervisor.


A practical example of separation function: For example, assume that there are two Web servers to operate under one LB. If the web servers are on the same hypervisor and it fails, both servers stop, and all web services stop. In order to avoid such a situation, take advantage of the segregation function, to limit the impact with at least one of the web servers still operational. By placing a virtual machine on a different hypervisor, you can diminish the risk of service outages.

STEP 1: Select the virtual machine

On the left hand menu click on “Virtual Machines”, then select the virtual machine that you want to configure segregation from the list.


STEP 2: Select the virtual machine to segregate

Click on the “Segregate Virtual Machine” from the Actions section.


Currently created virtual machines are displayed on the list. Please select the virtual machine that you want the current virtual server to be segregated from.


STEP 3: Segregation of the virtual machine running

After choosing a virtual machine, click on Segregate VM.


STEP 4: Segregation of the virtual machine is complete

Once the segregation is complete, the following screen is displayed:


If the segregated virtual machine attempts to start on the same hypervisor.

The error "This virtual server can not be started" appears, it is not activated. You can migrate to another hypervisor, or  remove segregation, then startup.

How to remove the segregation setting: If you want to remove the virtual machine that you set segregation on, you will be able to cancel it by selecting the blank area that appears at the top of the list below, and then click the segregation of virtual machine.
