You can change the name, description, and owner of a virtual machine in Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand.

You have the required permission to manage the virtual machine. If you are a member of the End User role, you are the virtual machine owner or you are a Virtual Infrastructure Administrator. The owner of the virtual machine is the user who created the virtual machine or who was transferred ownership of the virtual machine.

1

Select the virtual machine for which you want to edit the properties.

2

To change the name or description of the virtual machine, select Edit Name and Description from the Actions menu and type a new name and description.

The virtual machine name (a label in Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand) is distinct from the computer or host name, which is set in the guest operating system of the virtual machine and identifies it on a network.

3

To change the owner of the virtual machine, select Change Owner from the Actions menu and select the new owner from the list of users who can have access to the virtual machine.

Note

You must be a member of an administrative role in Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand to change the ownership of a virtual machine. End users cannot change the ownership of a virtual machine.
