    reference

    • activatePrivatePort
      Activate a server's private network interface to the maximum available speed. This operation is an alias for [SoftLayer_Hardware_Server::setPrivateNetworkInterfaceSpeed](/reference/services/SoftLayer_Hardware_Server/setPrivateNetworkInterfaceSpeed) with a $newSpeed of -1 and a $redundancy of 'redundant' or unspecified (which results in the best available redundancy state). Receipt of a response does not indicate completion of the configuration change. Any subsequent attempts to request the interface change speed or state, while changes are pending, will result in a busy error. A response of true indicates a change was required to activate the interface; thus changes are pending. A response of false indicates the interface was already active, and thus no changes are pending.
    • activatePublicPort
      Activate a server's public network interface to the maximum available speed. This operation is an alias for [SoftLayer_Hardware_Server::setPublicNetworkInterfaceSpeed](/reference/services/SoftLayer_Hardware_Server/setPublicNetworkInterfaceSpeed) with a $newSpeed of -1 and a $redundancy of 'redundant' or unspecified (which results in the best available redundancy state). Receipt of a response does not indicate completion of the configuration change. Any subsequent attempts to request the interface change speed or state, while changes are pending, will result in a busy error. A response of true indicates a change was required to activate the interface; thus changes are pending. A response of false indicates the interface was already active, and thus no changes are pending.
    • allowAccessToNetworkStorage
      This method is used to allow access to a SoftLayer_Network_Storage volume that supports host- or network-level access control.
    • allowAccessToNetworkStorageList
      This method is used to allow access to multiple SoftLayer_Network_Storage volumes that support host- or network-level access control.
    • bootToRescueLayer
      The Rescue Kernel is designed to provide you with the ability to bring a server online in order to troubleshoot system problems that would normally only be resolved by an OS Reload. The correct Rescue Kernel will be selected based upon the currently installed operating system. When the rescue kernel process is initiated, the server will shutdown and reboot on to the public network with the same IP's assigned to the server to allow for remote connections. It will bring your server offline for approximately 10 minutes while the rescue is in progress. The root/administrator password will be the same as what is listed in the portal for the server.

    • createObject
      <style type='text/css'>.create_object > li > div { padding-top: .5em; padding-bottom: .5em}</style> createObject() enables the creation of servers on an account. This method is a simplified alternative to interacting with the ordering system directly. In order to create a server, a template object must be sent in with a few required values. When this method returns an order will have been placed for a server of the specified configuration. To determine when the server is available you can poll the server via [SoftLayer_Hardware::getObject](/reference/services/SoftLayer_Hardware/getObject), checking the <code>provisionDate</code> property. When <code>provisionDate</code> is not null, the server will be ready. Be sure to use the <code>globalIdentifier</code> as your initialization parameter. <b>Warning:</b> Servers created via this method will incur charges on your account.

While the hard drives are tested for the initial deployment, the Passmark Certificate utility will not test the hard drives on your live server. This is to ensure that no data is overwritten. If you would like to test the server's hard drives, you can have the full Passmark suite installed to your server free of charge through a new Support ticket. While the test itself does not overwrite any data on the server, it is recommended that you make full off-server backups of all data prior to launching the test. The Passmark hardware test is designed to force any latent hardware issues to the surface, so hardware failure is possible. In the event of a hardware failure during this test our datacenter engineers will be notified of the problem automatically. They will then replace any failed components to bring your server back online, and will be contacting you to ensure that impact on your server is minimal.

    • setPrivateNetworkInterfaceSpeed
      Set the private network interface speed and redundancy configuration. Possible $newSpeed values are -1 (maximum available), 0 (disconnect), 10, 100, 1000, and 10000; not all values are available to every server. The maximum speed is limited by the speed requested during provisioning. All intermediate speeds are limited by the capability of the pod the server is deployed in. No guarantee is made that a speed other than what was requested during provisioning will be available. If specified, possible $redundancy values are either 'redundant' or 'degraded'. Not specifying a redundancy mode will use the best possible redundancy available to the server. However, specifying a redundacy mode that is not available to the server will result in an error. 'redundant' indicates all available interfaces should be active. 'degraded' indicates only the primary interface should be active. Irrespective of the number of interfaces available to a server, it is only possible to have either a single interface or all interfaces active. Receipt of a response does not indicate completion of the configuration change. Any subsequent attempts to request the interface change speed or state, while changes are pending, will result in a busy error. A response of true indicates a change was required to achieve the desired interface configuration; thus changes are pending. A response of false indicates the current interface configuration matches the desired configuration, and thus no changes are pending. <h4>Backwards Compatibility Until February 27th, 2019</h4> In order to provide a period of transition to the new API, some backwards compatible behaviors will be active during this period. <ul> <li> A 'doubled' (eg. 200) speed value will be translated to a redundancy value of 'redundant'. If a redundancy value is specified, it is assumed no translation is needed and will result in an error due to doubled speeds no longer being valid.</li> <li> A non-doubled (eg. 100) speed value <i>without</i> a redundancy value will be translated to a redundancy value of 'degraded'.</li> </ul> After the compatibility period, a doubled speed value will result in an error, and a non-doubled speed value without a redundancy value specified will result in the best available redundancy state. An exception is made for the new relative speed value -1. When using -1 without a redundancy value, the best possible redundancy will be used. Please transition away from using doubled speed values in favor of specifying redundancy (when applicable) or using relative speed values 0 and -1.
