In your scenario implementation, a fabric administrator must allocate resources to a business group by creating a reservation. After that, members of a business group can request virtual machines. You can configure each reservation for a specific business group to grant the users in that group access to request machines on a specified compute resource.

Prerequisites

Configure the datastore for the shared edge and compute cluster.
