Import ECS instances

Last Updated: Jan 23, 2018

If you have purchased an ECS instance without EDAS Agent installed, you have to import the ECS instance, which automatically installs EDAS Agent on the ECS instance and then synchronizes the ECS instance to the EDAS console.

  1. In the left-side navigation pane of the EDAS console, select Resources > ECS.

  2. On the ECS page, click Import ECS in the upper-right corner.

  3. In the Select Cluster and ECS step, select the namespace and cluster that you want to import your ECS to, and then select the ECS instance and click Next.

    • After you select a cluster, the system automatically displays the ECS instances available for this cluster.
    • If you wish to create a new cluster, click Create Cluster.

    Select cluster and ECS

  4. On the Set New Password page, enter a new logon password for the ECS instance and click Next.

    After you confirm the ECS import, the system clears all data on the ECS instance and uses the EDAS official image to reinstall the operating system. Make sure you remeber your new password.

    Enter a password

  5. On the Import ECS page, click Import.

    EDAS installs EDAS Agent on the ECS instance and synchronizes the instance to the EDAS console. The installation and synchronization take about five minutes. Then, following the prompts, click Back to go to the cluster details page under Cluster Management. In the Cluster Deployment Information area, you can view the import status and progress.

    When the status of the ECS instance changes from Converting to Online, then the ECS instance is imported successfully.
