How to View and Manage a Deployed Service

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

Use the following procedures to view and manage a deployed service. For information about how to deploy a service, see How to Deploy a Service in VMM.

To view a deployed service

  1. In the VMM console, open the VMs and Services workspace.

  2. Select the private cloud or host group to which you deployed the service.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Show group, click Services.

  4. In the Services pane, select the service that you deployed. You can expand the service to show each tier that is deployed and you can expand each tier to show the virtual machines that are deployed as part of that tier. You can also expand each virtual machine to show the applications (and each application’s settings) deployed to the virtual machine by VMM.

    The Service pane provides information about the status and configuration of the service; for example:

    • The VM Status column provides information about the state of the service, tiers, and virtual machines. For example, the VM Status column could show the following:

      • For a virtual machine, Stopped if the virtual machine is powered off.

      • For a tier, Saved Stated if all virtual machines in the tier are in a saved state.

      • For a service, Mixed if the tiers of the service are in different states.

    • The Template Name column displays the name of the service template that was used to deploy the service.

    • The Template Release column displays the version of the service template that the service is currently using.

    • The Update Status column displays New Release Available if there is a new version of the service template available with which to update the service.

    For information about updating a deployed service, see Updating a Service in VMM.

To manage a deployed service

  1. In the VMM console, open the VMs and Services workspace.

  2. Select the private cloud or host group to which you deployed the service.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Show group, click Services.

  4. In the Services pane, select the service that you want to manage, and then click the Services tab on the ribbon.

    The actions that you can perform on the entire service appear on the ribbon. For example, if you want to put all the virtual machines in the service into a saved state, in the Service group, click Save State. To view the properties of the service, such as which self-service users have access to the service, in the Properties group, click Properties.

    If you want to manage a tier in the service, in the Services pane, select the tier. A Tier tab appears on the ribbon. For example, if you want to deploy additional virtual machines to the tier, in the Machine Tier group, click Scale Out. For information about scaling out a tier, see Scaling Out a Service in VMM.

    If you want to manage a virtual machine in the service, in the Services pane, expand the appropriate tier, and then select the virtual machine. A Virtual Machine tab appears on the ribbon with a list of actions that can be performed on the virtual machine. For example, if you want to connect to the virtual machine, in the Window group, click Connect or View, and then click Connect via Console.
