Access Virtual Machines on the server

You can find out the hostnames and IP address of all of the virtual machines running on your server from the Commissioning Console. The below screenshot shows an example:

Full network access is provided to all the virtual machines from the Local Area Network or through the Management VPN.

Your Management account has domain admin permissions on the local Active Directory domain. There is an Active Directory trust relationship between the customer Active Directory domain and our Cloud Management Active Directory domain (ZCP). All Management accounts are created on the ZCP domain, which has Domain Admin permissions on the customers domain. 

You can connect to any Windows virtual machines using Remote Desktop Services (RDP). You can use a local domain admin account, or your Management account to log in to the Windows virtual machines. If using your Management account, you must use the ZCP domain prefix with your username to log in. E.g. ZCP\username.dfg


The Domain Controller on the server uses the Microsoft Windows ‘Server Core’ Operating System. This means that you don't connect to it directly via Remote Desktop Services. You can however perform all of your management and administration tasks from the Windows Management Virtual Machine which exists on each server and is named ZMANAGE. This Virtual machine has an IP address with the last octet being .160.
