You create labs, which are a collection of metadata, a single VMware Lab Platform template, and an instructional manual.
When you create a lab, you specify a collection of metadata, a single lab template, and an instructional manual. Specifying a lab template ensures consistent configuration for all lab users. Metadata includes information for using the lab such as username, password, and notes about the course. Metadata also sets parameters for the lab about things such as the expiration date for the lab, how much time is allowed to take the lab, which manual to use and so on. Instructional manuals are typically a series of procedures that guide a student taking the lab.
