Syncfusion’s Aaron Melamed led participants through the webinar “Maximizing Flexibility with Azure and
Syncfusion’s Dashboard and Big Data Platforms.”
This blog post is a short walk-through of part of the webinar showing viewers
how to connect t their deployed virtual machine (VM) the first time.
Once your dashboard has been deployed, it’s already started,
so the next step is to create a remote desktop connection. This is the
dashboard you will see after clicking on your deployed VM:
Click Connect to
download the RDP file.
An unknown publisher warning will pop up. Click Connect.
That brings up the Windows Security login box. Enter the
user name and password you created when configuring the VM’s basic settings.
A verification box will pop up informing you of certificate
problems. Click Yes.
The VM will begin to configure itself. It will log in as the
user you’ve specified, set up your desktop, and start to run the server manager
Staying in the Azure Portal, we can also configure a DNS
name. One of the ways to make your VM accessible to the public, via the
Internet, is to create a hostname.
A sidebar will pop up, as shown in the following image.
The DNS name label domain will be based on what you put in
the text box, and the location you chose earlier (in this case, East U.S.). You
can also use your own existing domain, or create a new one. Once you’ve typed a
name, click Save.
Now you’re connected to the
VM, and other people can connect to it too!
