  1. Ability to select GRUB entries from CP server

    Usually for every attempt to start a VS based on a Linux distribution template, OnApp uses pygrub to alway boot the default grub menu option. It would be nice if from the CP server the user had the option to choose previous kernel entries in the grub menu.

    With how OnApp currently works, selecting previous grub menu items requires a lengthy process booting into rescue image and manually changing the grub.conf.

  2. Sort "Specify IP Address" by age of use

    The assign IP address option in the OnApp user interface may offer an IP address at the top of the list which was just unassigned by another customer only 5 minutes earlier. OnApp doesn't seem to take into account if other IP addresses have never been used or if other IP addresses have been unassigned much longer.

    Instead, the Specify IP Address list should be sorted in reverse by age of last use. The IP addresses that have never been used should always appear at the top of the list. If all IP addresses in the available pool have been…

  3. Clone server from backup 2+ disks

    The task is that the user wants to restore the backup of the current server to a new virtual machine, and everything is fine if the user has an entire server from one disk (then the task is simple, we make the template and roll the whole server out of it ).
    But what should a client do if his server consists of several disks? He can clone the system, but how to get the remaining disks from backups?
    Then I take out a large "saw" and climb into the database by changing the backup target disk to the new…

  4. Improve VCD error logs

    It will be helpful if OnApp can distinguish the errors originated in VCD from those generated by OnApp Control Panel itself.

    Currently, both error types are displayed almost identically. Only an experienced engineer can differentiate them using the log output.

    I believe displaying them as different error types in CP UI will be beneficial.

  5. Show migration type in content balance check

    Under the integrated storage diagnostics, content balance checks, 'Some VirtualServers are not placed in an optimal way', users have the option to migrate VMs automatically to regain the local read path but the UI does not show which type of migration will be performed, it would be a useful feature to show HotMigrate or ColdMigrate so the user can easily see if downtime is required.

  6. Can manage Sticky session from load balancer

    Implement configurable sticky sessions on Load balancer (20 minutes by default or configurable by gui).

  7. Provide options for default CPU topology when creating Virtual Server

    Especially when creating Windows Virtual Server, it would be good if the system defaulted to some specified topology - like 4 sockets / x threads as example, so that Windows VS built with defaults can see all vCPU assigned properly.

  8. Ability to convert ISO virtual server backups into templates

    For a VS created from a custom template or ISO would provide the option to be exported to template from its backup.

  9. Support for 4Kn sector size HDD drives natively for static HVs

    Currently, OnApp does not support 4Kn sector size HDD drives for Static Hypervisors, and we need to do a workaround for OnApp to use 4Kn sector size drives.

    This workaround is to have the OS detect the drive via local ISCSI.

    This has major drawbacks that affect production systems which are

    1. Degrades IOPS
    2. ISCSI links get overloaded too often causing the Hypervisor to hang all virtual machines, dropping the storage links.
    3. IO is very expensive, this method degrades it more

    Hope OnApp supports this so we can let go of using ISCSI for local storage just to…

  10. Make Smart Servers Smart

    Smart Servers as things stand, aren't really that smart. They are barely different from Bare Metal servers in any useful sense.

    When deploying Smart Servers we should have the option of using NIC passthrough or not. If we chose not to use it, then we should retain the very useful features of Firewall and bandwidth monitoring.

    Without this it becomes very tedious to monitor bandwidth over a fleet of Smart Servers - we'd have to monitor when a machine changes HV, change the mapping of switch port to server in our billing platform (taking in to account the bandwidth already…

  11. Add Smart server support to WHMCS module

    Smart servers aren't supported on the WHMCS module - for a provider selling both this causes issues with UX.

  12. Relative links for VM resources

    It would be good to be able to specify relative links for VM resources per server - to avoid allowing customers to build servers with almost no cpu but purchase all the ram available on that compute resource for example. I could try and use min/max but it is per zone and per user so there is no way to do it per virtual server.

  13. Smart Server deployment should have the option to skip the VM deployment wizard

    You should be able to disable deploying smart servers as VMs by the end user, otherwise they could choose to create a tiny smart server that takes up a whole Hypervisor. Better to simply deploy to the entire HV and have a setting where the admin can reserve an amount for future expansion as a defult setting if they wish.

  14. Add OPNsense template

    OPNsense is a fork of pfSense (which is already available as a template in OnApp). Many of our customers would love to use OPNsense within OnApp.
    See https://opnsense.org for details.

  15. retry when backups failed

    I would like on the OnApp Cloud platform, when a backup fails (sometimes by timeout), you can retry the backup, because when you have many clients with VPS, the backup must be manually executed (not waiting until the next scheduled one will be taken).

    Thank you.

  16. Adding multiple IP

    Adding multiple IP at the same time, either by selecting more than one or just selecting the number you want to add would be a great addition, as many times we need to add large number of IP's and it's very time consuming and cumbersome

  17. Edit and rename disk label after creation.

    It would be really good to edit and rename disk label for already created disks. We had an issue where disks had the same size, labels and customer was confused so we were wondering if this is possible but unfortunately not yet. It would be nice to have it implemented in the future.

    Hello. I would like to inform you that OnApp allows you to edit a disk label after the disk is created on Xen/KVM virtualization.
    It might not be possible to edit a disk label on virtual machines that are built from OVA on VMware virtualization.
    Could you please provide more information about an environment where your customer was not able to edit a disk label?

  18. Add API request Get List of IP Addresses User

    Please add api request "Get List of IP Addresses User" for get all ip in User Pool
    now present only "Assign IP Address to User" and "Unassign IP Address from User"

  19. Usage Statistics - Virtual Server Name in Save as CSV

    On the Usage Statistics page for a user - https://portal.4d-cloud.com/usage_statistics – the Save as CSV is a really useful function. However, the CSV gives you the unique ID as opposed to the virtual server name, which from a customer perspective isn’t much use as they can’t easily tie that back to anything they know about.

  20. Permission Logs for change/create/delete operations

    None of the Role changes, use permission updates are logged.

    There is an audit log table but it is not functional.

    example scenarios:
    * Any intruder can create a user than create some VMs and give permissions to the VM's and than delete itself again.. and no-one can track what happened how these machines are created who give the permissions ..
    * If you by mistake change something on roles and would like to revert your change back there is no possibility
    * if someone will say "Add my SSH keys to all" on the role, for some time and…
