Aplica-se a: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

Use the following procedure to create a new hardware profile. By creating and re-using hardware profiles, you can ensure consistent hardware settings in each set of virtual machines created by using that hardware profile.

To create a new hardware profile

  1. In Library view in the VMM Administrator Console, in the Actions pane, click New hardware profile.

  2. On the New Hardware Profile dialog box, click the General tab, and then fill in the following properties:

    • Name (required). Type a unique name for the hardware profile.

    • Description (optional). Type a description for the hardware profile.

    • Owner (required). The owner must have a domain account in Active Directory.

  3. Click the Hardware Setting tab.

  4. Configure the hardware components.

    • Startup Order—Select the order of devices to start the operating system.

    • CPU Requirements—Specify processor requirements for the virtual machine.

    • Memory—Specify the amount of memory to allocate to the virtual machine, and whether to use Dynamic Memory.

      Support for Dynamic Memory was introduced in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 R2 with Service Pack 1 (SP1).

    • Floppy Drive—Configure the virtual floppy drive to read a physical floppy disk on the host or to read a virtual floppy disk file stored in the library.

    • Video Adapter—Configure the virtual video adapter for a virtual machine.

      Support for video adapter settings was introduced in VMM 2008 R2 with SP1.

    • DVD or CD Drive—Add a virtual DVD or CD drive to an IDE bus.

    • Network Adapters—Configure one or more virtual network adapters for a virtual machine.

    • Priority and Availability—Configure the virtual machine's priority for CPU and memory resources on the host. Configure the virtual machine to be highly available.

      Support for memory resource priority was introduced in VMM 2008 R2 with SP1.
