After you purchase a bastion host, you must enable the bastion host to use its features. This topic describes how to enable a bastion host.

Background information

The newly purchased bastion host is uninitialized. You must enable the bastion host to use its features.

Procedure

  1. Log on to the Bastionhost console.

  3. In the Run panel, configure the parameters. Run
    The following table describes the parameters.
    Parameter Description
    Network Select a virtual private cloud (VPC) and vSwitch for the bastion host.
    Notice
    • After the bastion host is enabled, you cannot change the VPC and vSwitch.
    • To ensure that the bastion host can communicate with the Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance that you want to maintain over an internal network, we recommend that you select the VPC in which the ECS instance resides.
    • If the selected vSwitch does not have available resources, the bastion host fails to be enabled. If the bastion host fails to be enabled because the selected vSwitch cannot provide the required resources, select another vSwitch and enable the bastion host again. You can create a vSwitch to use before you enable the bastion host. For more information, see Create a vSwitch.
    Security Group Select the security group of the required ECS instances.
    Note After you select a security group, the bastion host can access the ECS instances within the security group. You can select multiple security groups. You can also change the selected security groups after the bastion host is enabled.
  4. Click OK.
    The status of the bastion host changes to Initializing.
    Note It requires about 20 minutes for the bastion host to be initialized. Wait until the initialization is complete. After the initialization is complete, the status of the bastion host changes to Running. The bastion host is enabled.
