The computer name of the host that you are adding must contain only the following characters: a-z, A-Z, 0-9, minus sign (-), period (.), and underscore (_). A host is named according to the computer that it runs on.
When you install the cloud or add a host to the cloud, you specify the location for the data directory. All database copies are stored in this directory. If the location of your data directory is not local storage, ensure that minimum I/O requirements are met. See:
Cloud software is specific to an operating system and bitness. To add a host to the cloud that runs on another platform or bitness, you must first download the corresponding cloud software version and then create the host install.
