When planning a virtual machine deployment within an enterprise environment where multiple virtual machines will be configured, creating each one from scratch can be time consuming. Creating reference machines and using sysprep is suitable for small to medium sized operations, however, in larger environments automating and managing the processes for provisioning virtual machines can be streamlined even further using SCVMM. Using the Administrator Console in SCVMM to generate a VM template allows the duplication and depersonalization tasks to be performed automatically.
This course reviews the information required to deploy virtual machines in enterprise environments and explains the tools provided for provisioning virtual machines in medium and large environments.
