5.2.1 Connecting to the Cloud Server via the Recovery Console from Windows

 ATTENTION: we remind you that these guides are no longer valid as the connection method to the Recovery Console is no longer supported. Please use the only valid user guide for the Recovery Console.
By using the Recovery Console you can manage your Cloud Server using the graphical interface and simply via your Browser.
With the Recovery Console you can:
  • Reboot your virtual machine (remember that the shut down and start-up of your own virtual machine performed by the the control panel should be considered as a real Reboot).
  • Directly access the machine via the graphical interface by simply using your browser.
  • Manage and/or monitor the state of the virtual machine and any devices configured in it.
However, the use of the Recovery Console is only recommended in cases where it is strictly necessary since access methods such as RDP or SSH are preferable and definitely faster, perform better and are unrestricted. Access with the Recovery Console becomes the only way of accessing your Cloud Server when it is not associated with any Public IP and when it is not correctly configured.

First of all to access the Cloud Servers via the Recovery Console you must check that your client meets the minimum operating system and browser requirements: has made the Aruba Cloud Computing Plug-in software available to its customers which at the moment is compatible with:
  • Windows XP SP3
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Seven
and requires the use of Internet Explorer.

Aruba Cloud Computing Plug-in is capable of enabling your computer to directly access our infrastructure. After installing the necessary software (Recovery Console Installation) you will be able to access the virtual machine simply by accessing the management page and details of your own Server, by clicking the tab "Sign in"

at the top right, or by clicking on the button "Sign in"

relating to the Server in the summary page of active servers.
