Virtualization - createVirtualGuest

Virtualization - createVirtualGuest

Description :

This command creates a Virtual Guest Job, based on an XML file that contains the information from a virtual guest package. A virtual guest package describes the configuration of the virtual guest you want to create.

For information on obtaining and using the values in the XML file, see the introductory chapter, Virtualization concepts and The VGJ file.

Note: The XML file does not contain Server ACL information. When you create a Virtual Guest Job through the GUI, you specify Server ACL information through the Virtual Guest Job - Server ACL panel. When you create the Virtual Guest Job through the BLCLI, Server ACL information cannot be specified as input, and the permissions of the selected virtualization platform are used for the Server ACL of the target VM.

Return type : String

Command Input :

Variable Name

Variable Type




URL to the XML file containing the virtual guest package information.
