Updated: January 21, 2010

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

In a virtual environment, a guest operating system is the operating system that runs on a virtual machine, in contrast to the host operating system that runs on the physical host computer on which one or more virtual machines are deployed. In Virtual Machine Manager, a guest operating system profile is a collection of operating system settings that can be imported into a virtual machine template to provide a consistent operating system configuration for virtual machines created from that template.
