  • Navigate to the web interface at
  • Log in with your UCAMS credentials.
    • Domain: ornl

You can now launch a new VM Instance from within the web interface.

Launch an Instance

  1. Navigate to ProjectComputeInstances.
  2. Click the Launch Instance button, and fill out each section of the resulting dialog.

Details Tab – Fill out the required fields for the Details section.

  • Instance Name – The instance name can contain up to 20 alphanumeric characters and a hyphen. No special characters are permitted, and the host names are case sensitive. For example, good: my-instance, no good: my_instance&server. See RFC 952 and RFC 1123 for more information.
    📝 Note: When launching a new VM Instance, be aware that your VM Instance name may also serve as your DNS host name. If you wish for a DNS record to be created, matching the instance name you create, contact CADES with the subject "Request DNS Name Creation for VM."
  • Availability Zone – "nova" is the default zone. Do not change unless instructed to do so by a CADES administrator.
  • Count – The number of instances to start up at once. If using multiple Instances, the Instance names will be numerated (instance-1, instance-2, instance-3, and so on).
  • Once finished, click Next to proceed to the next tab.
