Stopping a Cloud Extension

You can stop a Cloud Extension from the Velostrata web management or vCenter:

Using Velostrata Web Management

1. Login to your Velostrata web management appliance via HTTPS://IP_OF_VELO_MGMT and login.

2. Click the Target Cloud icon.

3. Left click to select any of your defined Cloud Extensions.

4. Click the 'Stop' button. 

Note: you can only stop a Cloud Extension that is currently started. 

5. Click 'Yes' to proceed when prompted. Or 'No' to cancel. 

Using vCenter

A Cloud Extension can be stopped and will stop Velostrata Edge Node-A and Node-B, as well as the Windows Servicing Instance. The Cloud Extension can not be stopped if a VM is running in cloud using this Cloud Extension.

A Cloud Extension is automatically stopped if it is idle (that is, has no Virtual Machines running in the cloud) for 60 minutes.

To stop a Cloud Extension:

  1. On the VSphere Web Client, select Datacenter > Velostrata Operations > Stop Cloud Extension.
  2. Select the required Cloud Extension and click Stop.
  3. Click Yes to stop the selected Cloud Extension.
