Creating an APS Server

Creating an APS Server


When multiple APS servers exist, create a VM group on FusionAccess and put APS servers of the same type into the group. APS servers in the group are centrally managed, improving O&M efficiency.


  • You have logged in to FusionAccess. For details, see Logging In to FusionAccess.
  • You can open the Desktop page using the browser.
  • APS server templates have been created.


Table 2-10 lists the data to be obtained.

Table 2-10 Data to be obtained




Example Value

VM group parameters

Service type

In the application virtualization scenario, set the service type to SBC.


VM group name

Identifies a VM group.

  • The name can contain digits, letters, spaces, and special characters: ~!@%^_+-, and cannot exceed 55 characters. The name cannot start with any of the following characters: !@%^.
  • The VM group names must be unique in a site.


VM group description

Provides supplementary information about the VM group. This parameter is optional.

A string of 0 to 255 characters.

Application virtualization

VM group type

One of the following can be set:

  • Full copy
  • Linked clone
  • Full memory
  • Hosting computer

Linked clone

APS server parameters


If you specify a host, the data store for the VM will be created on the host. If you specify a cluster, the data store for the VM will be randomly created on a host in the cluster.


Select VM template

This parameter corresponds to VM group type and is automatically associated with the configuration of VM group type.


VM naming rule (linked clone/full memory)

The naming rule specifies how VMs are named. The VM name consists of a prefix and a number expressed by one or multiple number signs (#). The prefix starts with a letter or a digit. It consists of letters, digits, and -. The VM name is 1 to 15 characters long.


Names of linked clone and full memory VMs cannot contain the AD domain account name.


Number of VMs

Specifies the number of VMs to be created. The number of VMs is a positive integer less than or equal to 100. If the IP address of the first NIC is a static IP address (Obtain IP is set to Static in the NIC configuration), the value of Number of VMs ranges from 1 to the maximum number of VMs allowed in the IP segment. The maximum number of VMs cannot exceed 100. If the assigned IP addresses are already used in the network segment, the value of Number of VMs is the difference between the maximum number of VMs allowed in the IP segment and the number of used IP addresses. For example, if 80 VMs are allowed in a network segment and five IP addresses are used, the maximum number of VMs to be created is 75 (80 – 5).


Local area

Enter the area configured on System > Rights Management > Area Management.


OU name

Enter the value of OU name configured on System > Initial Configuration > Domain/OU.


VM name prefix (full copy/QuickPrep)

Specifies the VM name prefix before a VM is assigned. It is a string of 0 to 5 characters consisting of letters and digits.

  5. Use the parameter values in the template or re-configure the following parameters based on the actual requirements.

    • Number of CPUs
    • Memory size

    The preceding parameters are automatically associated with the parameter values set in the template. Configure the parameters as required.

  6. Configure other information based on the data plan.

    The VM naming rule specified for linked clone or full memory VMs cannot contain a domain account name.


    Set Local area and OU name for the APS server in System in advance.

  7. Click Finish.

    An information dialog box is displayed.

  8. Click OK.

    A dialog box is displayed indicating that the VMs are added.
