Delegation, each of its child host groups will automatically inherit these settings from the parent

Group Isolation A host group can be used to isolate a host or collection of hosts. If, for example,

a host has virtual guests that host mission-critical applications, that host can be isolated by placing it in its own host group. In this manner, the administrator can be sure that only appropriate users are delegated permissions and that host reserve resources are maximized for availability.

System Center Virtual Machine Manager Library Server Each System Center Virtual Machine Manager library server contains a catalog of

resources that can be used to create and configure virtual machines in System Center Virtual Machine Manager. The library contains files that are stored on library shares, and it can contain file-based resources such as virtual hard disks, virtual floppy disks, ISO images, and scripts.


After the setup is complete, the default library server and library share cannot be moved. Give careful consideration to its location when running Setup.

In addition, the library server can contain virtual machine templates, hardware profiles, and guest operating-system profiles, which can be used to create virtual machines and store virtual machines that are not in use.

Library Groups As library servers are created, library groups can be created to help organize the

library servers in a way to best suit your needs.

It is a best practice to align the library servers with the host groups that use those resources, especially when the library server is SAN-connected. In this way, it is known which hosts and library servers can be used to take advantage of SAN file transfers.

System Center Virtual Machine Manager Server Placement

For most System Center Virtual Machine Manager deployments, a single System Center Virtual Machine Manager server is sufficient. System Center Virtual Machine Manager deployments can be subsequently scaled by adding more virtual machine hosts and library servers as the environment grows. Having a single System Center Virtual Machine Manager server with a single database also
