How to create a Cloud using a Template

A Cloud deployment template allows you to create a Cloud server with the same resources as the original (without data).

⚠️ Important: When deploying a service using a deployment template, the same IP will be configured as on the server used to create it. So there may be connectivity problems until this is changed.

  • In the case of a Linux server, you will have to configure the server IP with the IP that you will find in your SWPanel.

  • In the case of a Windows service, you must also use the sysprep tool to avoid problems of duplicate names / IDs within the same network.

To create a Deployment Template you can follow this manual: How to create Cloud Deployment Templates
