This area provides the following buttons:
Verify Settings. Starts the verification of the virtual machine creation settings specified for each source production computer. If any issues are found, you are prompted to resolve them.
Create Lab. Starts the virtual test environment creation using the specified settings. This button only becomes available after you have successfully verified the virtual machine creation settings.
Enable Network. Use this option to manually enable network adapters in the created test environment.
Select DCs. Opens a dialog box you can use to select source domain controllers for which to create virtual machines in your virtual test environment. The source domain controllers you have already selected are displayed in the List of Source Computers.
Add Computer. Opens a dialog box you can use to specify a source standalone server from which to create a virtual machine in your virtual test environment. The source standalone servers you have already specified are displayed in the List of Source Computers.
For example, you can use the Add computer button to add DNS servers not integrated into Active Directory, Exchange Servers, or the current computer on which you are using Recovery Manager for Active Directory.
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.
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:
Provides the following elements:
Target Virtual Machine
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.
