This topic describes all the statuses of a DDH from its creation to its release.
A life cycle of a DDH starts right from its creation and ends with its release. The following table displays the various statuses of a DDH.
|Status||Attribute||Description||Visible in the console|
|Starting||Transitory||A DDH is in the status before Running during its time of creation. If a DDH is in this status for a long time, an exception occurs.||Yes|
|Running||Stable||The DDH is running properly. You can create and manage ECS instances on a DDH in such a status.||Yes|
An error occurs to the DDH. You can open a ticket to report and solve the problem.
DDH falls in this status, when a Subscription DDH expires. You must renew the subscribed DDH. With this action, the status changes from Expired to Running. For more information about renewal, see manual renewal.
|Released||Stable||When a Subscription DDH is released because of expiration, it enters this status. When a DDH is released, all its resources become unavailable.||No|
