How to view your VMs in the UKCloud Portal
The My VMs page in the UKCloud Portal enables you to see, at a glance, the services currently operational within your environment, including virtual machines (VMs) and vApps.
Accessing the My VMs page
To go to the My VMs page:
If necessary, switch to the account that you want to work in.
In the Portal navigation panel, expand VMware Cloud and then select the compute service with which you want to work.
Select the My VMs tab.
From the Currently viewing for VDC list, select the virtual data centre (VDC) you want to work with to see its settings.
Viewing information about vApps
The vApps tab shows a list of the vApps within the selected VDC. The information displayed includes the number of VMs within the vApp.
On the My VMs page, select the vApps tab.
Click a vApp name to view additional information about that vApp in the Info tab.
Select the VMs tab to see a list of the VMs within the selected vApp and their properties.
One useful property that you can see is the backup status.
In the example above, there is no backup policy for this VM so the backup icon is greyed out. If backups are successful there will be a green icon, if backups have failed there will be a red icon.
If you need to manage your backups for a VM, click the Manage button. For more information, see How to manage Snapshot Protection for your VMs.
Click a VM name to see additional information about it, including backup logs.
Viewing information about VMs
The VMs tab displays a list of all VMs within the selected VDC.
On the My VMs tab, select the VMs tab.
Click a VM to view its additional properties, including backup logs.
Viewing Snapshot Protection information
The Snapshot Protection tab enables you to specify a snapshot retention policy to apply to all the VMs in a VDC. You can apply the policy to all new VMs or to all new and existing VMs.
For more information about Snapshot Protection, see How to manage Snapshot Protection for your VMs.
