To access your Orka instance, you must first create a user via the Rest API or the Orka CLI. Once you are authenticated under one of the methods above, you can create your virtual machine and deploy it to a non-occupied node. Once the virtual machine is running, you can access it using the VNC IP address and port provided in the response of a successful deployment.
You can set up a user either by using the Orka Rest API or Orka CLI.The quickest way to start is by using the CLI :
$ orka user create -e <email> -p <password> -l <license-key> -a <orka-api-url>
$ orka login -e <email@example.com> -p <password>
An auth token will be cached for further commands.
Raw or QCOW2image format to use as the VM base is preferred. VMDKs can be uploaded and converted as well.
$ orka image upload -I <mojave.img>
$ orka vm create-config -v <vm-image.img> -b <base-image.img> -i <image.img> -c 24 -y $ orka vm deploy -v <vm-image.img> -o <node-name> -y
You are not able to deploy a VM to a node that is fully occupied -- i.e. one that is out of resources. If you attempt to do this, you will receive an error.
