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

You can use the following procedure to create storage classifications in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). Storage classifications enable you to assign user-defined storage classifications to discovered storage pools, typically by quality of service (QoS). For example, you could assign a classification of GOLD to storage pools that have the highest performance and availability.

Account requirements   To complete this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrator user role or a member of the Delegated Administrator user role.

To create storage classifications

  1. Open the Fabric workspace.

  2. In the Fabric pane, expand Storage, right-click Classification and Pools, and then click Create Classification.

  3. In the New Classification dialog box, enter a name and description for each classification that you want to create. Click Add to add each newly created classification.
