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

Repeat this procedure two times to create reservations for both the Production and the Development business groups.
