List of source computers

Lists the source computers for which the Active Directory Virtual Lab creates virtual machines in your virtual test environment using the settings configured on the General, Hardware, and Active Directory tabs.

Virtual machine creation settings and events

Provides tabs on which you can configure settings to create a virtual machine from the selected source computer. You can also view events generated by the Active Directory Virtual Lab during the virtual machine creation.

This area provides the following tabs:

General tab

Provides the following elements:

  • Target Virtual Machine
    • Name. Use the Name text box to type a name for the virtual machine to be created from the source computer.
  • Infrastructure Specify the virtual host and location on the host where you want to place the virtual machine.
    • Storage Policy. For VMware vCenter 6.5 and later, ADVL allows a user to select a storage policy which will be applied to the target virtual machine. The selected policy will be applied to the virtual machine files in the VM Home directory and all virtual disks. When the selected storage policy has encryption as part of its configuration, the target virtual machine will be encrypted.
    • Host name. Specify the host where you want to place the virtual machine.
      (VMware only) When you have a cluster in the VMware vCenter configuration, the cluster name will be shown in the list instead of cluster hosts when the Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) feature is enabled and DRS automation level is Partially or Fully Automated.
      If DRS cluster is selected, you should specify the shared storage for the managed hosts in the Storage option.
    • User name and Password . (SCVMM only) Type access credentials for connecting to the selected virtual host. The account whose credentials you specify must have sufficient permissions on the target host. For more information, see Permissions.
    • VM folder. (VMware only). Select the folder in which you want to place the target virtual machine.
    • Storage. Select a storage in which to place the virtual machine files. You should specify the shared storage if you use VMware DRS cluster. Otherwise, the DRS feature will not work.
  • Source Computer Access. Use the User name and Password text boxes to type access credentials for connecting to the source computer. The account you specify must have sufficient permissions on the source computer. For more information, see Permissions.
  • Source Computer Details. View detailed information about the source computer selected in the List of Source Computers.

Hardware tab

Provides the following elements:

General

  • Number of processors. Specify the number of processors you want to have on the target virtual machine.
  • Memory (RAM). Set the amount of random access memory you want to allocate to the target virtual machine.

Network adapters. Select the number of network adapters you want to have on the target virtual machine. When you are done, in the list below this option, configure TCP/IP settings for each adapter (to get started, in the IP Address column, click <Dynamic IP>).

Disk Volumes. Select the disk volumes you want to virtualize and add to the target virtual machine.
For VMware vCenter 5.0 and later, you can specify the provisioning type for the target virtual disks. By default, "Thin Provision" is used. To specify Thick Provision Lazy Zeroed for the disk, select the check box in the Thick Provision column in the Disk Volumes section. For more details about the type of disk provisioning, refer here.
