Procedure

  1. Select Infrastructure > Administration > Reservations.
  2. Click the New icon (Add) and select the type of reservation to create.

  3. (Optional) : Select an existing reservation from the Copy from existing reservation drop-down menu.

    Data from the selected reservation appears. You can make changes as required for your new reservation.

  4. Enter a name in the Name text box.
  5. Select a business group from the Business group drop-down menu.

    Only users in this business group can provision machines by using this reservation.

    The priority is used when a business group has more than one reservation. A reservation with priority 1 is used for provisioning over a reservation with priority 2.
