bookmark_borderFeature to set a name on snapshots now available

Hey There!

We’re happy to announce a new feature in CrownPanel to help make managing snapshots easier, The panel now supports adding/setting names to Snapshots.

Naming a Snapshots is a very useful feature, for example,

  • If you have multiple snapshots, it would be ideal to name each.
  • If you run multiple versions of software, you can name the snapshot with the version it contains

and many more usage scenarios where having a user-defined name on a snapshot would be very useful.

When you click on the dropdown marker, you are presented with 2 options,

  • Edit Snapshot Name
  • Remove Snapshot

As the name suggests, Edit Snapshot Name offers you the ability to set a user-defined name for a snapshot, for example, “My First Snapshot”,

The user interface for Edit Snapshot Name appears as shown below,

To add a Name to the Snapshots,

Select option “Edit Snapshot Name” and the text has a maximum allowed length of 32 alphanumeric characters.

And click the button “Update Snapshot Name” to name the snapshot.

In the above screenshot, you can see the example name “NewSnapshot” has been set on the snapshot we just created.

And you can also set a Snapshot Name when the snapshot is building as well.

To Remove a Snapshot,

Select the option “Remove Snapshot” as shown in the screenshot below,

And clicking the “Remove Snapshot” will remove the Snapshot as shown in the screenshot.

Stay tuned for further updates!

bookmark_borderHard Reboot Option Now Available

Hello there!
As part of our series highlighting the redesign/changes in our panel, We have introduced a new option in our control panel (CrownPanel), Hard Reboot.

Previously, Hard Reboot was achieved by issuing a shutdown task and then a boot task to re-boot the system. In other words, this option is similar to pulling out the power to your PC and then plugging back in.

We recommend only having to use this option when the VPS is not responding to any of your actions, for example, incase of a kernel panic.

You will find the Hard Reboot option under the Power Control tab

Once you click on the Hard Reboot button, you will see a popup window with a confirmation and the warning / informational message.

This option is available for both virtualizations OpenVZ and KVM.
