This article describes how to understand the Virtual Networks and Servers page, as accessed from the Compute dropdown menu on the Home page.


  1. Users with any role can view the Virtual Networks and Servers dashboard, but only a user with Primary Administrator, Network, or Server role can navigate to a Network or Server Dashboard. 
    1. Adding a Network or Network Domain - See:

    2. Deploying a Server - See: 

    3. Connecting to the Region VPN - See:

    4. The Name column identifies the name of a Resource (Data Center, Network, Network Domain, Server). Click on the dropdown  icon next to a resource to expand it. 

    5. The Services column identifies which services are available in that Data Center for a particular resource. 

      •  icon indicates that Backup services are available. 

      •  icon indicates that Monitoring service is available. 

      •  icon indicates that DRS for Cloud is available. 

      •  icon indicates thatCloud Server Snapshot feature is available.  

        • If the icons are greyed out ( ,  ) this indicates that the service is available, but not enabled. 

        • If the Backup icon is greyed out, it may indicate that Backups are unavailable. Hovering your mouse over the icon will indicate the reason
    6. The Primary IPv4 and Primary IPv6 columns display the respective IP addresses for each resource. 

      1. NIC Connection State - If a NIC has been disconnected, the  icon will be displayed. For more information on NIC Connection status, see Introduction to NIC Connection Status
        • Note: If no such icon appears, the NIC is connected
    7. The CPU, RAM, and Storage columns display the respective counts of each resource. 

    8. The last column contains the Manage gear  - which, depending on the type of resource will allow you to take further actions against a resource, such as connect to the Data Center VPN or add a Network Domain/Network



  2. Note: as you drill down into a Data Center, more information is displayed. For example, in the above image, the two MCP 1.0 Servers do not have associated IPv6 Addresses (available in MCP 2.0 Data Centers) so N/A is displayed; but you can see their allocated CPU, RAM, and Storage. The three MCP 2.0 Servers display IPv4, IPv6, CPU, RAM, and Storage.
    Note: If a Server has a "Managed Server" tag, it cannot be managed by users.
    Note: Hovering over an asset icon (Data Center, Network Domain, Server) will display a popup with additional information about the asset:

Managed Server Special Trait

A Server tagged with the Managed Server special trait is a normal Cloud Server that has been marked for internal management (for example, as part of a managed service contract) and as such has limited access for User management, but is managed through additional services available through your service provider.

Note: If a Server has been tagged with this special trait, you cannot access Virtual Console on the Server.
