How to create a Server?

Hi,
Today, there is only 2 ways to create a server: on the Gandi user interface.

  1. From the Gandi user interface
  2. From the Openstack CLI

From the Gandi user interface

  1. Authenticate yourself on https://admin.gandi.net
  2. Access to GOStack section and click on ‘Create a server’
  3. Complete the form : choose a configuration, an OS image, enter your ssh public key or select an existing one and give a name to your server. Validate the form
  4. It will take about 2minutes to create the server.
  5. Once the server is active, you can connect to it through SSH !

From the Openstack CLI

Please refer to this message that explains how to do : Public API is now available ! How to configure the Openstack CLI

Sorry, but I didn’t find how to enter my ssh public key.
All I’ve tried failed.
May I have a little help?
Thanks

Hello Egide,
Do you have a difficulty to enter the public ssh key on the form or to create a ssh-key ?

Can you share with me the error message ?
thanks a lot :slight_smile:

Just a problem of syntax.
The name of the key with
special characters _, @
was refused but the error
message indicates
unable to import the ssh key.
Solved now and server created.

However, I didn’t see on the server creation
form how to create a new ssh key.
I used an existing ssh key on my machine.
