Guided Setup for Alibaba Cloud

Guided setup for Virtualization creates a hypervisor configuration and enables the Virtualization solution.

When you log on to the Command Center for the first time, a setup wizard guides you through the core setup for the Command Center. After you complete the core setup, complete the guided setup wizard for Virtualization.

At any point during the setup wizard, click Finish setup later to leave the wizard. If you leave the setup wizard before it is complete, it will appear the next time you log on.
