In this tutorial, you will learn how to create a Template in the V2 Cloud dashboard from an existing cloud computer. Templates are a good way to start a new customer/employee in just a few minutes. All your settings/configuration and application installed will stay the same. Please note that only the administrator profile will remain in the template: all other users will be deleted. You are billed for a template, as you would be for a normal VM. You cannot add users in a template: they will be deleted when you spin the template into a new VM. Templates can only be reverted back to normal VMs by contacting our support staff.
Log in your dashboard and select the cloud computer you want to make a Template for.
Select Convert to template in the drop down menu with your VM and name your new template. It will now appear as a template in your dashboard.
Select the Computers tab on the left to get back to the first screen and Add a new Cloud Computer to use your new template.
You can select your new template when you arrive to the Template tab while creating your new VM.
Please refer to this tutorial to learn how to create a new VM.
You are done! You can now create a template to use for future VMs with all your applications pre-installed.
