I want to configure the virtual machine settings in Acronis Cloud Security. How do I do that?


To configure the virtual machine (VM), select a VM in the object tree and click on the VM Settings from the menu or right-click on the selected VM and select the VM Settings. The following dialog box will display:

On the Common tab, you can manually define the VM IP address, set logging and bandwidth parameters.

Check Define IP manually box to manually detect the VM IP address. In most cases, you don’t have to do this, as the IP address is detected automatically by Acronis Cloud Security. However, there are certain scenarios when this option is needed, such as with non-Windows OS based VMs, where Acronis Cloud Security is unable to automatically detect the VM IP configuration. In this scenario, it is necessary to manually determine IP address so that Virtual Firewall rules work for non-Windows OS based VMs as well.

Please enter a single IP v4 or IP v6 IP address (as applicable) which are assigned to the VM in the IP Addresses field – only single value is accepted. If Acronis Cloud Security gets the IP addresses from the VM IP network settings automatically, you will see them in this field when this dialog box opens. 
Note: The IP address that is set here manually does not affect the actual IP settings on a VM. It is only used by Acronis Cloud Security to analyze the VM traffic and properly apply virtual firewall rules in the event it is unable to automatically detect it.

Set virtual firewall logging parameters on the Firewall tab. Please refer to knowledge base article - How do I keep my Acronis Cloud Security product's database optimized so I am not running out of disk space?

Set bandwidths allowed send/receive limits:
- Enter the maximum (in Kbps) allowed send bandwidth limit in the Allowed send bandwidth (Kbps) field.
- Enter the maximum (in Kbps) allowed receive bandwidth limit in the Allowed receive bandwidth (Kbps) field.

Check the Packet integrity check box to enable CRC check on the incoming packets for the VM. If this option is enabled, any traffic allowed by any rule for this VM will be put through CRC check. If the sum is incorrect or corrupted, the packet will be dropped.Please note that some network devices might not be compatible with this option and therefore, normal traffic will be blocked if CRC check is enabled. In such cases it is recommended to leave this option disabled.

On the Member Of tab, you can determine which user defined security groups the VM will be assigned to:

To add a new security group, click Add. In the Select VM Groups dialog box, select the necessary groups and click OK to add the selected groups to the VM:

You may select several groups by holding the Shift or Control buttons pressed on your keyboard while performing the selection:

Note: All groups created by any user will be seen here if you are logged in as a global administrator. If you are logged in as a tenant user, only those groups created by this tenant’s users will be displayed and available to be assigned to the VM.
