  1. Only the Primary Administrator or a Sub-Administrator with the Server role can create a Cloud Server.
  2. The Source Image you are deploying from needs to be a Non-Guest OS Customization Image. Non-Guest OS Customization Images can be identified by the presence of a "plug" icon as shown in the diagram below:
  3. You must provide a unique VLAN on the same Network Domain for each NIC associated with the source Non-Guest OS Customization Image.
    1. You cannot connect two NICs to the same VLAN - each VLAN can only be connected to one NIC on a given Server.
    2. Each VLAN must be in a NORMAL state.
    3. For details on how to deploy a VLAN, see How to Deploy a MCP 1.0 Cloud Network or a MCP 2.0 Network DomainHow to Deploy a VLAN on a Network Domain in an MCP 2.0 Data Center 
  4. If the Source Image exists in a Data Center location with User-Manageable Clusters, then the specifications of the Cloud Server must be supported by the Target Cluster. For details, see How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location.
  5. The Data Center must be MCP 2.0. Non-Guest OS Customization Images are not supported in MCP 1.0 Data Center locations.
  6. In order to deploy a Server with disks that utilize the Provisioned IOPS Disk Speed, the Data Center must be enabled with that speed. See How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location
  7. CPU count must be supported by the Servers Virtual Hardware version. We recommend keeping Virtual Hardware version up-to-date. See How to Update Virtual Hardware on a Cloud Server
    1. If changing the number of CPUs to anything other than 1, 2, or 4 CPUs, the Virtual Hardware must be Version 4 or greater
    2. Support for using 3/5/6/7/8 virtual CPU's requires Virtual Hardware version 7
    3. Support for using more than 8 vCPU  requires Virtual Hardware version 8
    4. Support for using more than 32 vCPU requires Virtual Hardware version 9
    5. Support for using more than 64 vCPU's requires Virtual Hardware version 11
    6. Support for using more than 128 vCPU's requires Virtual Hardware version 15
  8. RAM count must be supported by Server's Virtual Hardware version. We recommend keeping the Virtual Hardware version up-to-date. See How to Update Virtual Hardware on a Cloud Server
    1. Support for using more than 64 GB RAM requires Virtual Hardware version 7
    2. Support for using more than 255 GB RAM requires Virtual Hardware version 8
    3. Support for using more than 1011 GB RAM requires Virtual Hardware version 11
    4. Support for using more than 4080 GB RAM requires Virtual Hardware version 13
  9. Advanced Virtualization Settings validations:
    1. For more information on Advanced Virtualization Settings, See Introduction to OS (Operating System) and Client Images Advanced Virtualization Settings
      1. If the Source Image has Nested Hardware Virtualization set to true, then the Target Cluster must be enabled to support Advanced Virtualization Settings. See How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location
      2. If the Source Image has CPU Latency Sensitivity set to HIGH, then the Target Cluster must be enabled to support Advanced Virtualization Settings. See How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location
      3. If Source Image has Numa Autosize numaAutosize set to true, then the Target Cluster must be enabled to support Advanced Virtualization Settings. See How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location
      4. If Source Image has Enable Host Info to VM Tools set to true, then the Target Cluster must be enabled to support Advanced Virtualization Settings. See How do I Identify Hardware Specifications and Capabilities Available in a Data Center Location
