Virtual Guest Job - Virtual Guest Package Selection

The Virtual Guest Package Selection panel lets you choose the Virtual Guest Package (VGP) to use for the Virtual Guest Job (VGJ).

  1.  Choose the VGP to use for the Job.
  2. Browse to the host server (vCenter, global zone, IBM frame, Citrix XenServer, RHEV Manager server, or Microsoft VMM server) that is the target for the new virtual guest.

    Note

    The IBM frame and the Citrix XenServer are represented by an agentless managed object. A VMware vCenter server might also be represented by an agentless managed object.

  3. Expand the host server node, and drill down until you find your target for the VGJ.
    Note the following considerations for selecting a target, based on platform:

    Notes

    VMware

    • Select the target for the new new Virtual Machine as either Host server, Resource Pool, or DRS-enabled Cluster.

    Citrix XenServer

    • If you are deploying the virtual machine to a Citrix XenServer Pool, all disks belonging to the virtual machine must reside on shared storage for the pool.
    • You can select only one Host as the target for the virtual machine.

    Hyper-V

    You can select only one VMM server as the target for the VGJ.

  4. Click OK.
