Resource pools let you manage your computing resources within a host or cluster by setting them up in a meaningful hierarchy. Virtual machines and child resource pools share the resources of the parent resource pool.
The Resource Pool page appears only when resource pools are configured on the host.
- On the Resource Pool page of the New Virtual Machine wizard, navigate to the resource pool where you want to run the virtual machine.
- Select the resource pool and click Next.
The virtual machine is placed in the resource pool you selected.
What to do next
Select a datastore in which to store the virtual machine files.
