3.11 Virtual Machine, Network, Hard Disk Creation Part 11
5 hours 8 minutes
last one creating in configuring of virtual machines. They're gonna take everything we just discussed.
Bring it all together.
All right, so
let's go back over it all hyper v Manager,
Choose our server. So we've chosen Deadpool over here on the right hand side, you can choose the menu here. These are the actions you can do, and you would choose new virtual machine.
You can also from here choose hard this on floppy disks.
Floppy disk. You would obviously only use that in a Gen one environment. We've discussed this in previous episodes. Hard disks is if you just wanting to make a brand new hard disk for something on, it allows you to choose the disc format that this type
go into quite a lot of detail. You can create shared hard disks, virtual hard disks that enabled you to back up virtual machine groups using a shed hard disk.
The good thing to know is that Avi HD set on this one is only eyes not supported in operating systems. Before Windows 10 only Windows 10 conceal with a PhD set
on, you can see the other One's Bhd supports a virtual hard disks up to two terabytes and size. If you need to go bigger, you need to choose the HDX. And generally you want to use the HDX unless your
dealing with any situation where you're dealing with an operating system earlier.
Hopefully, in this day and age, that's not too many.
I've not seen many people, especially in my work, great where they're using, like with No. Seven anymore.
In this country, we have the n hs, the National Health Service. Up until very recently, they were still using Windows Exp,
which is a huge security risk, and they actually got ransomware. You might have heard of it in the news in your country, but it was. It was a major issue, so they're still fixing that one.
Yeah, so let's let's let's move swiftly on that one.
Once you've chosen your type, you can then choose whether you want it to be a fixed size,
dynamically expanding or difference in.
So difference. ING is a bit more advanced than we go through in the fundamentals course, but it allows you to have what's called a parent child relationship with another disk
effectively you would make a disk on then, once you've got it where you want it like a set level. You can tell it to difference on any changes get put into a separate Bhd file, which means that that original disc is always the same. It's very good for doing like preference changes and things like that.
Dynamically expanding means you can tell it how big you want it to go is a flexible, like
but it won't take up all 10 terabytes immediately will only take up whatever amount of space it actually needs up to and including that number that you give it.
So that's the idea with it
on, and then underneath you would choose where what you wanna call it, where you're going to save it
on. Then under that, you'd be able to configure the disk. So whether you want to create a new one if you want to copy the contents of another physical disk that you've got, so you can see the three discs on my machine there or you can copy another virtual hard disk. If so, you want to make changes to it without
affecting the without affecting the current virtual hard disk as well. Yes, Eddie, absolutely so dramatically expanding is thin provisioning effective
on. Then you would have your summary screen. And it will tell you what's gonna happen when you click the finish one. We're not gonna do that because that's part of the system that we're gonna build in.
Uh, so we're gonna go back
great for that call choosing you and then virtual machine. So here we're gonna pick the name. And in fact, I have totally missed something which I'm gonna do now if you right, click on deadpool and choose hyper V settings.
This allows you to set the default hyper V settings for yourself,
and it's on a per server basis. If you've got them in a cluster, each one could be differently managed so you can set the default location for virtual hard disks.
Virtual machines. In this case, I've put them both to the same section. You could also tell it if you want to manage any remote effects. Now we discuss this in the previous training episode. Remote effects basically means that you have a graphics card that can be used in a virtual machine
and allow it to do things with the graphics card. Generally,
that's not something you do. But if you're doing something in a virtual machine that needs graphical power and prowess to do it, you can actually give the graphics card in your machine to that virtual machine. Say you're okay to use on it will tell it underneath. You can see there the GPU details. So there.
Currently, I don't have any virtual machines because what we just delete it to them
on it shows you how much available memory it has. 12. Gig of Ram, the V Room Sorry video Ram
Eyes provisioned. It tells you what's capable of doing and what the current driver is for that section, so it allows you to set up a swell
new must fanning. We've discussed this before, so it's non uniformed memory architecture. If you have lots of service together in a cluster, they can actually share and span all of their memory as one giant block eso. It provides a virtual machine with more memory than what is available on a single node.
Uh, how is, uh,
bear mind? Using this can decrease overall performance because it needs to transfer data all over the place, especially if you get to a larger larger,
uh, Custer's A. Cz well,
storage migrations. This basically means that you can specify how many migrations can be performed at the same time. On this computer, the default is to generally, you don't really want to go to high unless you've got like a real powerhouse. It will cue them up if you try and make more migrations in the meantime, so it's not too much of an issue.
You could also enable enhanced session mode policy from here wanting to configure enhance session, which I'll show you and recreate the virtual machine.
It just allows things like redirection of local drives of resource is from
the computer from your physical computer to the V N. When you go in virus session effectively. So it just like our DP. When you can choose toe, connect your local drives up. Same principle
