Preparing the Fabric Scenario in VMM

Updated: November 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager

The procedures in this section describe how to configure the fabric in System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM).

In this section, you will configure the fabric to provide sample resources for hosts, virtual machines and services. In the example scenarios, you will create a host group structure, configure the library, and configure resources for both networking and storage. Because several of these scenarios depend on your existing hardware and physical infrastructure, consider the examples as guidelines. The examples that are used in the documentation are designed to help you to understand the logical flow from preparing the infrastructure to making the infrastructure building blocks available to a private cloud.

The following table summarizes the sample resources that are used in this section.
