How to Configure Deployment Settings for a Service 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

When you are configuring a service for deployment to a private cloud or to a host group in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM), you can configure settings for the following:

  • The service

  • The virtual machines being deployed in each tier

  • The applications that are being installed

noteNote
The procedures below assume that you have started the deployment process for a service and that you are working in the Deploy Service window. For information about starting the deployment process, see How to Deploy a Service in VMM.

To configure deployment settings for the service

  1. On the deployment map, select the service object. The service object contains the name of the service template being used and the release value.

  2. The details pane displays the settings that you can configure for the service. The following are some key settings that you can configure:

     

    Setting Description

    Name

    The name for the deployed service. This is the name that will appear in the VMs and Services workspace after the service is deployed.

    Folder

    The host group to which you want to deploy the service. This setting is only displayed if you are deploying the service to a host group.

    To save your changes to the deployment settings, click the down arrow in the top left corner of the ribbon, and then click Save.

To configure deployment settings for a virtual machine in a tier

  1. On the deployment map, select the virtual machine object in a tier.

  2. The details pane displays the settings that you can configure for the virtual machine. The following are some key settings that you can configure:

     

    Setting Description

    VM name

    The name for the virtual machine. This is the name that will appear in the VMs and Services workspace after the service is deployed.

    We recommend that you set the value of VM name to match the value of Computer name to ensure consistent displays when monitoring the health and performance of the virtual machine with Operations Manager.

    Computer name

    The computer name to use for the guest operating system of the virtual machine. Ensure that this computer name is not already being used in your environment.

    Folder

    The host group to which you want to deploy the virtual machine. This setting is only displayed if you are deploying the service to a host group.

    Host

    The host to which you want to deploy the virtual machine. This setting is only displayed if you are deploying the service to a host group.

    TipTip
    The pin icon next to a setting allows you to specify whether the value you enter can be changed when the virtual machine is created and deployed. When the pin is in a horizontal position, the setting will not be changed.

    To save your changes to the deployment settings, click the down arrow in the top left corner of the ribbon, and then click Save.

To configure deployment settings for an application being installed

  • In the left pane, the Settings tab displays the service settings that will be used during application deployment. The contents of the Settings tab varies depending on the application packages and scripts that are configured for the service.

  • For more information about configuring application installations, see How to Create an Application Profile in a Service Deployment.
