A fabric administrator creates reservations to allocate resources to business groups. Depending on your scenario, the procedure to create an endpoint differs.

Each business group must have at least one reservation for its members to provision machines of that type. For example, a business group with a Red Hat OpenStack reservation, but not an Amazon AWS reservation, cannot request a machine from Amazon AWS. The group must be allocated a reservation specifically for Amazon AWS resources.
