Overview

Introduction

The Managing Storage Infrastructure 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:

  • Prepare System Requirements for Shared Storage
  • Configure Disk Storage for Virtual Machine

Estimated time to complete this lab: 60 minutes.

Exercise 1 - Prepare System Requirements for Shared Storage

System Center 2012 Virtual Machine Manager R2 provides flexibility in managing disk storage for virtual machines in Hyper-V hosts. The Fabric workspace streamlines the management of virtual machines’ network and storage properties using SCVMM.

Exercise 2 - Configure Disk Storage for Virtual Machine

In the previous exercise, you configured PLABC01 to run as iSCSI Target Server. The mentioned server will be provisioned as a dedicated storage for virtual machines that will be created later on the PLABHYPERV02 server using SCVMM.

When a Hyper-V host is managed by SCVMM, it is aware of the disk storage locations of the virtual machines created on the virtualization server.
