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
The friendly name is cosmetic and for easy use in mydre.org.
The real machine name or machine IP must be used in applications, the friendly name will not work
