Fabric administrators must allocate resources to machines by creating a reservation before members of a business group can request machines.

Log in to the vCloud Automation Center console as a fabric administrator.

A tenant administrator must create at least one business group. See Create a Business Group.


Each reservation is configured for a specific business group to grant them access to request machines on a specified compute resource.


Configure the resources and network paths available to machines that are provisioned by using this reservation.


You can configure alerts to send email notifications whenever reservation resources are low.
