Active Directory tab

If the source computer is a domain controller, this area provides the following elements:

  • FSMO Roles. Allows you to configure FSMO roles for the virtual machine to be created. To add new FSMO roles, select the check boxes next to those roles.
  • Global Catalog. Select the check box in this option if you want the virtual machine to act as a Global Catalog server in the virtual test environment.

Events tab

View the events generated by the Active Directory Virtual Lab for the source computer selected in the List of Source Computers.

Virtual lab project default settings

Each virtual lab project has a number of default settings. Initially, you configure these settings in the wizard that helps you create new virtual lab project. For each virtual lab project, you can view or modify these default project settings.

To view or modify the default project settings

  1. In the Active Directory Virtual Lab console, open the virtual lab project whose settings you want to modify.
  2. From the main menu, select Tools | Project Settings.

In the dialog box that opens, use the following tabs:

  • Source Forest. View or change access credentials for connecting to the source Active Directory forest from which to create your virtual test environment.
  • Virtualization. View or change access credentials for connecting to the third-party virtualization software with which to create virtual machines in your virtual test environment.
  • Host. View or change the virtual host and storage where to place the target virtual machines. You can also view the amount of space available in the currently selected storage.
  • Hardware. View or change the default parameters for creating target virtual machines, such as the number of processors, amount of RAM, number of network adapters, and network settings.

Default parameters set on the Host and Hardware tabs are used to populate options in the Virtual machine creation settings and events area for each new source computer you add to the virtual lab project.
