Fabric administrators create reservation policies to collect resources into groups for different service levels, or to make a specific type of resource easily available for a particular purpose. After you create the reservation policy, you then must populate it with reservations before tenant administrators and business group managers can use the policy effectively in a blueprint.

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

Create at least one reservation.


Fabric administrators use reservation policies to group similar reservations together. Create the reservation policy tag first, then add the policy to reservations to allow a tenant administrator or business group manager to use the reservation policy in a blueprint.


When fabric administrators create a reservation, the option to assign that reservation to a reservation policy appears. To assign an existing reservation to a reservation policy, you edit the reservation.
