7. Select existing or create new network

8. Provide a new name for the new Cloud Server and click Launch VM

10. Once the creation of the Cloud Server is completed, the rood/admin password will be displayed. Please record this password somewhere. If you lose the password, you can stop the instance and select 'Reset Password' to generate a new password for the Cloud Server.
