The VM Basic Config panel lets you specify the guest OS basic configuration information, such as computer name, admin password, workgroup and domain registration-related information for VMware, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization platforms. This panel appears only if the Virtual Guest Package is based on a template.
The fields you see on this panel depend on the OS type chosen for the virtual machine.
