Cloud Hosted IT Labs Introduction

This is a quick start guide for our cloud hosted IT labs.

Lab Controls

You can control your lab with the top-right corner of the GUI (graphical user interface).

Machines

The Machines tab allows you to manage your VMs. You can also see the VMs username and password.

 

This will also be used if you have multiple VMs and need to switch between them.

Time Remaining

Closing Labs

In the top-right corner you may end your IT lab. If you have completed the lab, mark it as complete. Otherwise you should simply select "Cancel My Lab"

 

Please note: If you do not end a lab with that button but simply close the browser window, you may reopen the lab from the course and resume where you left off.

To the right of the mailbox icon you will see a computer screen. This allows you manage your screen options or reconnect to the VM if your connection has been lost.

VM Controls

Most importantly is the light-night icon that allows you to send commands to the VM. For example, you may send a ctrl+alt+del with this window.
