Dedicated Host:Enable automatic deployment

Last Updated:May 09, 2024

If you enable automatic deployment for a dedicated host, the dedicated host is added to the resource pool of your Alibaba Cloud account for automatic deployment. When you create an Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instance, you do not need to specify a dedicated host. The system selects a dedicated host from the resource pool to deploy the instance. This improves deployment flexibility.


By default, Allow Automatic Deployment is selected when you create a dedicated host. Unless you manually deselect this option, there is no need to enable it again.


  1. Log on to the ECS console.

  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Instances & Images > icon1 > Dedicated Hosts.

  3. In the top navigation bar, select the region and resource group to which the resource belongs. 地域

  4. Select the dedicated host that you want to manage. In the upper-left corner of the Host tab, choose dropdown-menu > Modify DDH Info.


  5. In the Modify DDH Info dialog box, switch on Automatic Deployment.


  6. Click OK.
