Before members of a business group can request virtual machines, fabric administrators must allocate resources to that business group by creating a reservation. Each reservation is configured for a specific business group to grant them access to request virtual machines on a specified compute resource.

Perform this procedure twice to create Edge reservations for both the Production and Development business groups.
