Problems logging into newly created vCloud Air virtual machine.

Posted on Updated on

Have you created a virtual machine but are having problems logging in?

If you visit my last post on virtual machine creation in vCloud Air , you will see that there were no options to preselect usernames and passwords for the vm.

How do we logon in??

To resolve this we are going to have to go through a few steps.

Go back to the vCloud Air portal and power off the machine.

In this image I’m waiting for the vm to go down.

Once the vm is off,

Select the virtual machine,

Then in the actions drop down box choose: “Manage in vCloud Director”

007-03

A new window will pop up.

In this windows, on the upper left corner click “My cloud”

Now the view changes.

Click vms and find your virtual machine.

007-05

Right click your virtual machine and select properties

007-06

Select the “Guest OS customization tab”

You should see the auto generated password for your vm

Now hit cancel and go back and power on your vm

Then open the console. (right click the vm to pop out the console)

Now you should be able to logon and change your password.
