Friendly VM Names

All resources, VMs included, need to have a unique name hence the long cryptic naming.

The friendly names feature is nice especially when you have more than one VM and run into situations like:

  • Several VMs organizationally assigned to specific people

  • Different VMs with different settings/applications

To rename a VM:

  • Press Rename Machine (1)

  • Fill in a friendly name

  • Press ok


The friendly name is cosmetic and for easy use in

The real machine name or machine IP must be used in applications, the friendly name will not work
