Updated: November 1, 2013
Applies To: System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager
|As of System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) Self-Service Portal has been removed.|
You can use the VMM Self-Service Portal in System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) to perform the following tasks:
Create a new virtual machine from a template and deploy the virtual machine to a private cloud to which you have been assigned.
Perform actions on a virtual machine, such as start, stop, and shut down. The actions you can perform on a virtual machine are determined by your administrator.
In System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager, you can also use the VMM console to perform these tasks. Your administrator might provide you with additional capabilities when you use the VMM console, capabilities that are not available when you use the Self-Service Portal. For example, your administrator might grant you the ability to create and share virtual machine templates.
The procedures in this section describe how to install and then open the VMM Self-Service Portal.
Before you install the VMM Self-Service Portal, ensure that the computer meets the minimum hardware requirements and that all prerequisite software is installed. For information about hardware and software requirements for VMM, see System Requirements for System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager.
