The Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide for System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 includes the following seven-step process:

Step 1: Define the Project Scope. This step involves determining which parts of the organization to include in the design.

Step 2: Determine Whether to Integrate with Operations Manager 2007 for Reporting. This step involves deciding whether to integrate Virtual Machine Manager and Operations Manager.

Step 3: Design Operations Manager Integration. This step involves selecting a design option for Virtual Machine Manager and Operations Manager integration.

Step 4: Determine the Number of Virtual Machine Manager Instances Required. The goal of this step is to determine the number of VMM instances the organization requires.

Step 5: Size and Place the Virtual Machine Manager Server, SQL Server-Based Server, Database, and Web Server. The goal of this step is to design the servers for each VMM instance identified in Step 4.

Step 6: Size and Place the Library Servers and Libraries. This step involves creating a list of library servers and their requirements.

Step 7: Design the Network Connections. The goals of this step are to ensure that network connectivity between VMM servers and agents is sufficient in terms of network bandwidth and that required firewall rules are in place to allow traffic to flow as necessary.
