Before members of a business group can request machines, fabric administrators must allocate resources to them by creating reservations.

Each business group must have at least one physical reservation for its members to provision physical machines. Each physical machine can belong to only one reservation, but each reservation can contain multiple physical 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 specific physical machines.


Add physical machines to the reservation.


Optionally, you can configure alerts to send notifications whenever reserved resources run low.
