Creating RHCOS virtual machines

The IBM® Cloud Infrastructure Center supports creating RHCOS4 virtual machines. If you are assigned the self_service role to a project in the IBM Cloud Infrastructure Center Manager, you can use a Deploy Template to create a RHCOS4 virtual machine.

To create a RHCOS4 virtual machine, follow these steps.

  1. Log in to the appropriate project and open the Deploy Templates page.

  2. Select the RHCOS4 deploy template that you want to use and click Deploy.

  3. On the page that opens, specify the requested details.
    z/VM® only option: You can specify the virtual machine's ip address in Deploy Template page.

  4. For ibm-default project:

    • Depending on the policies associated with the project, this action might require approval from the administrator or the project manager before it starts. In this case, a request is created. To view the status of your requests, use the Requests area at the top of the IBM Cloud Infrastructure Center window.

  5. For projects other than ibm-default:

    • If the deploy template is using a public image, the administrator approval is required for the successful deployment, irrespective of the existing cloud policies. A notification is sent to the administrator.

    • If the deploy template is using a private image, depending on the policies associated with the project, this action might require administrator or project manager approval before it starts. In this case, a request is created. To view the status of your requests, use the Requests area at the top of the IBM Cloud Infrastructure Center window.
