Adding a Virtual Machine

Last Updated:  

Background: This contains details regarding adding a virtual machine to your Blueprint in IQMAP.


Open the New Virtual Machine wizard by clicking the 'New Virtual Machine' tile in the Virtual Machines section of the Blueprint modal.

The first step will inquire for details regarding the virtual machine, including which template of VM is intended to be deployed (for more information regarding the differences between templates and their use cases, see: Selecting A Template), the name of the virtual machine, and depending on whether or not a Desktop or Server template was selected, the Total Users (used to user licensing costs including Citrix and RDS licenses) and Estimated Concurrent Users (used to calculate initial CPU/Memory/Storage recommendations) for the virtual machine.

After supplying appropriate information, click 'Next' to continue.

At this point, the user is prompted to select any additional applications for the virtual machine. For more information, and information on how to modify the selected applications after the wizard has been completed, see: Applications.

When ready, click 'Next' to continue.

The user will now be prompted to select a storage policy. A description of any given storage policy can be viewed by selecting it; alternatively, for more information as well as instructions on how to modify the virtual machine's storage policy after the wizard has been completed, see: Storage Policies.

Click 'Next' to continue.

Finally, review the VM's details and click 'Finish' to add it to the Blueprint.

The virtual machine will now appear in the Virtual Machines section of the Blueprint modal, and its costs in the appropriate areas of the live tally section. A number of new controls will be present, including those to modify the CPU, Memory, and Storage planned for allocation to the VM, populated with our initial recommended values.
