In this lab we will make our own Windows Server in vDC using Bluvalt Cloud.

You can follow the video tutorial - click Here.

Prerequisites

Lab Steps

  • Create Virtual Data Center Service
  • Accsess to VDC Service
  • Creating a Virtual Router
  • Creating a Virtual Network
  • Creating a Security Group
  • Creating a Key Pairs
  • Creating or Launching a Virtual Instance
  • Assign Floating IP to The Instance
  • Access to the Virtual Instance by console in VDC Service
  • Access using Remote desktop

Create Virtual Data Center Service

Virtual Data Center

is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources over the Internet - Virtual Data Center Link

it will take around 2 minutes to be ready

Accsess to VDC Service

Access to the Virtual Instance by console in VDC Service

First we must resest the password for Administrator Account

Access using Remote desktop

First we must turn of the firewall inside windows server Then using our PC Windows to do remote access to the server

Conclusion

Congratulations! You now have your own Virtual Data Center Service and Windows Server Instance .
