Rescue mode

With your server in KVM rescue mode, you can now carry out the maintenance required to the repair your server.

For example, you can: 
- check and update your network configuration files, 
- check and decontaminate your firewall if required, 
- check and update your LILO or GRUB (or to configure another Netboot via the network) 
- launch a manual check of your file systems, 
- carry out backup or restoration of data, 
- etc. 

You have to login to your client portal area, then click on the service where is your server, click power, netboot , rescue , choose the rescue mode and click Boot now.
You should receive by email, a new temporary login for the rescue mode.

When you think you have identified and fixed the problem and wish to boot from the OS installed in your server, you must configure the 'Netboot' in the client portal API, to the Hard disk.
Login to your client portal area, check the service where is your server, click power, netboot, hard disk, Boot now
then go to reboot, then the reboot green button, and wait for 10 minutes to be sure everything is correctly loaded.

* KVM rescue mode is completely different with KVM virtualization for VPS.
