The Managing Clouds in Virtual Machines Manager module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Add Hyper-V Servers to Virtual Machine Manager
  • Configuring a Private Cloud

Estimated time to complete this lab: 60 minutes.

Exercise 1 - Add Hyper-V Servers to Virtual Machine Manager

In this exercise, you will configure the firewall rules to allow Virtual Machine Manager to manage the Hyper-V hosts in the lab. After which, you will set up an SCRunAsAccount user that will be used for managing the Hyper-V hosts in the Virtual Machine Manager console.

Please note that you may have seen these tasks in previous modules. You need to perform these again, because the Hyper-V servers are not managed by default in Virtual Machine Manager as per lab setup.

Exercise 2 - Configuring a Private Cloud

Corporate networks traditionally host the backend servers that provide services to end-users who access network applications via proprietary front-end application. This is example of on-premise computing where the servers and workstations are located in the same location or spanning multiple locations owned by the same organization.

Cloud computing is paradigm shift on computing where resources are located typically in off-site locations and accessed by end-users through a standard web browser.

In this exercise, you will learn how to configure Virtual Machine Manager and set up a basic cloud computing infrastructure.
