Use of the rescue system
If you have an EUserv server plan, there is a possibility to comprehensively configure it in the customer service center.
You also need special parameters that you can find in the customer service center, too.
With the function "Rescue-System", you have the possibility to connect your server with the rescue system, even if the system installation was failed or the server was/is not accessible via the usual way. You can still store your data from your server without running an operating system. Furthermore, you can correct any software defects with the rescue system. Because you have the full access to your file system, you can replace corrupted files and repair your system.
With the option "vKVM" you can also control your server like your home PC. With vKVM, keyboard and mouse input as well as screen output, are available for your virtual servers. Thus it is possible, to detect and repair the errors during the boot process.
