On the FusionAccess portal, create naming rules for VMs.


You have logged in to FusionAccess. For details, see Logging In to FusionAccess.


Table 3-16 lists the data to be obtained.

Table 3-16 Data to be obtained




Example Value

VM naming rule

Contain AD domain account

Specifies whether the VM name contains the domain name of the user who logs in to the VM.

Value: Yes or No

This parameter cannot be set to No when you set the naming rules for linked clone or full memory VMs.


Rule name

Identifies a naming rule.

The rule name can contain digits, letters, and underscores (_). It cannot exceed 30 characters.


Computer name prefix

The VM name consists of the computer name prefix and a number. The computer name prefix must start with a letter or digit and consist of letters, digits, and hyphens (-). It cannot contain only numbers or hyphens. The total length of the computer name prefix and the number cannot exceed 15 characters.


Number of digits

Specifies the number of digits of the number in the VM name. It must be an integer from 1 to 10.


Start value

Specifies the start value of the number in the VM name. For example, if the number of digits is 3 and the start value is 1, the VMs created are numbered from 001.


VM number

Specifies the sequence in which the VMs are numbered.


  • Increment by VM per user: The VMs are numbered in ascending order per domain user.
  • Use system-assigned sequence: The VMs are numbered based on the sequence in which the VMs are assigned.

For example, the number of digits is 3, start value is 1, domain user A is assigned with two VMs, and the VM assignment sequence is 2 and 8.

  • If Increment by VM per user is selected, the VMs assigned to user A are named UserA001 and UserA002.
  • If Use system-assigned sequence is selected, the VMs are named UserA002 and UserA008.



  1. On the FusionAccess portal, click Desktop.
  2. In the navigation tree, choose Service Configuration > VM Naming Rule.
  3. Click Add.

    The page for configuring the naming rule parameters is displayed.

  4. Set the following parameters based on the data plan:

    • Contain AD domain account
    • Rule name
    • Computer name prefix
    • Number of digits
    • Start value
    • The digits in names ascend for a single user

    If you select Contain AD domain account, you must also configure The digits in names ascend for a single user.

  5. Click OK.

    A dialog box is displayed.

  6. Click Confirm.

    The system displays a message indicating that the naming rule is created.
