Each reservation is configured for a specific business group to grant them access to request specific physical machines.

About this task

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

Repeat this procedure twice to create reservations for the Production business group on the shared edge and compute clusters in both Region A and Region B.
