Machine resource settings control the resources consumed by a machine provisioned with your blueprint.

About this task

Depending on your platform type, not all machine resource settings are available.

Procedure

  1. Specify CPU settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum number of CPUs in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum number of CPUs in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  2. Specify memory settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum amount of memory in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum amount of memory in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  3. Specify storage settings for provisioned machines.
    1. Required: Enter the minimum amount of storage in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum amount of storage in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  4. (Optional) : Specify the lease settings for provisioned machines, or leave blank for no expiration date.
    1. Enter the minimum number of lease days in the Minimum text box.

      If you only provide a minimum, this number becomes the value for all machines provisioned from this blueprint.

    2. (Optional) : Enter the maximum number of lease days in the Maximum text box to allow users to select their own settings within the range that you provide.
  5. Add Storage volumes.
    1. Click New Volume.
    2. Required: Enter the capacity in the Capacity (GB) text box.
    3. (Optional) : Enter a drive letter and mount path in the Drive Letter/Mount Path text box.
    4. (Optional) : Enter a name in the Label text box.
    5. (Optional) : Select a Storage Reservation Policy from the drop-down menu.

      This option requires additional configuration by a fabric administrator to create storage reservation policies.

    6. Click the Save icon (Save).
  6. (Optional) : Select Allow user to see and change storage reservation policies.

    If selected, users who are provisioning machines can see and change the storage reservation policies that you apply to blueprints.

  7. Enter the maximum number of volumes a user can select for provisioned machines in the Max # of volumes text box.

    Leave blank to accept the default of 15, or enter 0 to disable adding volumes.

  8. Enter the maximum number of network adapters a user can select for provisioned machines in the Max # of network adapters text box.

    For example, if your integration platform has a limit of 10 network adapters, set your maximum at or below this threshold so that users cannot cause provisioning to fail by selecting more network adapters than your platform supports.
