(Optional) Switching a VS

A Physical System (PS) administrator can switch from one Virtual System (VS) to another.


To facilitate user operations, you can run commands in the admin VS to switch to the VS system. In this way, you can perform operations on different VSs without switching the login window.

Furthermore, you can determine whether to enable login authentication when the user switches from the service admin VS to a service VS according to security requirements.

Pre-configuration Tasks

Ensure that the service VS to be switched to has been created.


  1. Run switch virtual-system vs-name command to switch the VS managed by the current user.

    This configuration can be performed only on the admin VS. That is, only switching from the admin VS to a service VS is supported, and switching between service VSs is not supported.

  2. Run system-view

    The system view of the service VS is displayed.

  3. Run virtual-system switch-authentication enable

    Login authentication when the admin-VS is switched to a service VS is enabled.

    Ensure that a valid user (AAA local user or remote user) has been configured for the service VS. Otherwise, the authentication fails and the user cannot log in to the service VS.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
