Lesson 2. Working with Making Modifications to Virtual Machines (VMs) This lesson discusses modifying virtual machine (VM) settings, which allows for the following:

  • Adding virtual hardware
  • Removing virtual hardware
  • Setting VM options
  • Control VM and CPU Memory resources
  • Creating a raw device mapping (RDM)

When modifying a virtual machine, there are two compatibility modes: - Physical compatibility: Guest operating system is directly accessing the LUN, no virtualization layer required

  • Virtual compatibility: you can use snapshot and the LUN behaves as a virtual disk.

This lesson also discusses advanced boot options: - Delay power on

  • Boot into BIOS
  • Retry after failed boot
