Provides the following elements:
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.
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.
View the events generated by the Active Directory Virtual Lab for the source computer selected in the List of Source Computers.
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.
In the Active Directory Virtual Lab console, open the virtual lab project whose settings you want to modify.
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.
