VM Template default storage and default networking

    Question

  • How can I modify a template or the SCVMM settings to prefer one CSV over another for placement of disk and or vm. Also how do i default to a vlan. My hope is to be able to create a vm from a template and after hitting next, next.. we have a VM and Disks in a standard location. Currently we have 2 CSV's and 1 clustered file server. The file server shows up as the default location to place both the vm and the disks.

  • Hello,

    You should assign a Classification to the CSV, which you want to use it for default VM placement path.

    Then, you should edit the VM template at location: Properties -> Hardware Configuration -> Bus configuration -> <virtual hard disk>, associate the VHDX with the correct Classification.

    For the network setting, are you using the VM Network with logical switch, or just the standard switch?

    Best regards,

  • Hello,

    I'm not quite sure that you want to set the VLAN in which stage from the wizard.

    As far as I know, there are two stages for setting the VLAN. One is "Configure Settings", and the other is "Select Networks".

    Best regards,
