    Creating a server

    The following describes how to create a server from the NAVER Cloud Platform console.

    Note

    This section briefly introduces how to create a server. For more details, refer to Server Creation Guide.

    1. Connect to the NAVER Cloud Platform console.
    2. Click the Services > Compute > Server menus, in that order.
    3. Click the Server menu.
    4. Click the [Create server] button.
    5. Select a server image and click the [Next] button.
    6. Enter the required information, and then click the [Next] button.
    7. Set the authentication key or create a new one, and then click the [Next] button.

    9. After the final confirmation, click the [Create server] button.

    Configuring the server access environment

    Set the public IP, port forwarding, and firewall (ACG) to access the created server. Beforehand, check the name and password of the administrator since they're needed to access the server.

    Setting public IP

    The following describes how to set up a public IP to access the created server.

    1. From the NAVER Cloud Platform console, click the Services > Compute > Server menus, in that order.
    2. Click the Public IP menu.
    3. Click the [Request for public IP] button.
    4. Select a server to be applied and click the [Next] button.
    5. After the final confirmation, click the [Create] button.

    Setting port forwarding

    Set port forwarding to access the server assigned with a private IP via internet.

    The following describes how to set up port forwarding.

    Note

    If public IPs and port forwarding are simultaneously used, then Ports 22 (Linux) and 3389 (Windows) will be primarily assigned to port forwarding, and these ports can't be used by public IPs. In order to use Port 22 or 3389 from public IPs, delete the port forwarding settings from the server.

    1. From the NAVER Cloud Platform console, click the Services > Compute > Server menus, in that order.
    2. Select the server to set port forwarding for, and then click the [Set port forwarding] button.
    3. Select the server name and enter the external port, and then click the [Add] button.
      • The range of available external ports is 1,024 - 65,534.
      • These external ports can only be used for the purpose of server access.
    4. Click the [Apply] button.
      • You can access the server using the public IP for server access that is displayed in the port forwarding information of server details and the external port set when setting fort forwarding.

    Setting firewall (ACG)

    The following describes how to set up a firewall for network access control.

    Caution

    This section briefly introduces how to set a firewall (ACG). For more information, refer to Setting firewall (ACG).

    1. From the NAVER Cloud Platform console, click the Services > Compute > Server menus, in that order.
    2. Click the ACG menu.
    3. Select the ACG to set rules for, and then click the [Set ACG] button.
    4. Enter the protocol, access source/destination, and allowed port (service) and then, click the [Add] button.
      • Up to 100 rules can be added.
    5. After adding all of the rules, click the [Apply] button.

    Get Admin Password

    The following describes how to check the admin password for server access.

    1. From the NAVER Cloud Platform console, click the Services > Compute > Server menus, in that order.
    2. Click the Server menu.
    3. Select the server to check the Admin password.
    4. Click the [Manage servers and change settings] button, and then click Get Admin password.
    5. Attach the authentication key file generated while creating a server.
      • You can attach the authentication key file by dragging and dropping it in the Drag a file with the mouse or click here area.
      • You can attach the authentication key file by clicking the Drag a file with the mouse or click here area and selecting it.
    6. Click the [Get password] button.

    Accessing a server

    You can access the created server (Linux or Windows) after carrying out all preparations for server access.

    For more information on connecting the Linux server, refer to the Linux Server Connection Guide, and refer to Windows Server Connection Guide for more information on connecting the Windows server.

    Creating a NAS volume

    To use NAS, a NAS volume must be created first to save the data shared among servers. The following describes how to create a NAS volume in the NAVER Cloud Platform console.

    1. Click the Services > Storage > NAS menu in order in the NAVER Cloud Platform console.
    2. Click the NAS Volume menu.
    3. Click the [Create NAS volume] button.
      nas-start-classic_add_ko
    4. When the Create NAS volume page is displayed, proceed with the following steps in order.

    1. Creating a volume

    1. Select the zone where the NAS volume will be created.

    2. Enter the NAS volume name and volume capacity.

      • You can enter 3 to 20 characters as the volume name using alphabets, numbers, or a combination of alphabets and numbers.
      • A customer identification number starting with 'n' is automatically generated before the entered volume name to identify customers.
      • The default volume capacity ranges from 500 GB to 10,000 GB. Additions can be made in units of 100 GB.
    3. Select a protocol to apply to the NAS volume.

      • When NFS is selected, it can be mounted on the Linux server, such as CentOS and Ubuntu.
      • When CIFS is selected, it can be mounted on the Windows server.
    4. Select the volume encryption application status.

      • Volume encryption is applied to each volume and can only be set when the volume is first created.
      Note

      The volume encryption feature of the NAS can encrypt all data that is saved using software-based encryption technology at the volume level.

      • Unique encryption key: internally managed by the storage system (AES-256 algorithm is applied to each volume)
      • Encryption module (CryptoMod): compliant with FIPS-140-2 level 1
    5. Set the volume termination protection status.

    6. Click the [Next] button.

    2. NFS access control setting

    The setting page is displayed differently depending on the protocol selected while creating the volume. Complete settings according to the selected protocol and click [Next].

    When the NFS protocol is selected

    The NFS access control setting page is displayed. The access control permission can be granted to the server created by other accounts in the Classic environment.

    • To grant access control permission to the server created in NAVER Cloud Platform, select the server to allow access from the list of all servers and click the i-nas_right / i-nas_left button to add or delete.

      • ACL setting: Servers added to Read / Write have the read and write access permissions for the NAS volume.
      • ACL setting: Servers added to Read Only have the read access permission for the NAS volume.
    • To grant access control permission to the server created by another account, enter the IP in the Custom Server IP area, determine the scope of the permission and then, click the [Add] button.

    When the CIFS protocol is selected

    The CIFS authentication information setting page is displayed. Enter the ID and password.

    Note
    • Setting authentication information is required only when a CIFS volume is first generated (once for each account). When creating a CIFS volume, check the set authentication server and click the [Next] button.
    • For more information on how to manage the CIFS authentication information, refer to CIFS authentication information change.

    3. Final confirmation

    1. Check the settings and click the [Create volume] button.
    2. View the mount information in the NAS volume creating pop-up window and click the [OK] button.
      • The NAS volume can be mounted on the server using the mount information displayed in the pop-up window.
