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

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