Create Virtual Machine with New Template

Step 1: Go to Configure > Virtual Machines

  1. Click on
    Configure
    in the top menu and select
    Virtual Machines
    .
    In the
    Virtual Machines
    screen you will see a list of existing virtual machines, their status, OS type and version, resources, and available actions. You can also search for a specific virtual machine.
    If there are no virtual machines in the host machine, the
    Virtual Machines
    screen displays a message and shortcut for adding Virtual Machines.

Step 2: Add Virtual Machine with new Virtual Machine Template

  1. In the
    Virtual Machines
    screen, click on
    Add Virtual Machine
    .
  2. Name the virtual machine. Don't use spaces or special characters.
    Click on
    Next
    .
  3. Click on
    Add Virtual Machine Template
    .
  4. Name the new template.
  5. Choose the OS details, like Image type, OS type, and version.
  6. Fill in resource allocation. The minimum values are listed below.
    If selected image type is
    Local ISO Image
    , then there must be an ISO image added already. See the Add ISO Images section for detailed steps.
    Ubuntu Linux:
    • CPU: 2 Cores
    • Memory: 2048 MB
    • Storage: 20 GB
    Windows 10:
    • CPU: 2 Cores
    • Memory: 2048 MB
    • Storage: 32 GB
    You can opt to enable
    v-GPU
    with the template.
    If the selected image type is
    Local ISO Image
    , then the
    Enable v-GPU
    flag must be disabled in template creation. If you want your VM to be
    v-GPU
    enabled, then use the VM edit option under
    Actions
    to enable it once VM creation is successful.
  7. Click on
    Add
    .
    You will see a notification indicating that the template was created and the new template will be displayed in the
    Add Virtual Machine
    screen.
  8. Select the template you've created in the previous steps.
  9. Click on
    Next
    .
  10. Since the selected template is Windows, the Edge Software Package will not be available. Click on
    Next
    .
  11. Choose dedicated PCI and USB devices from the existing list if needed for your virtual machine.
    Click on
    Next
    .
  12. You cannot choose a
    Username
    and
    Password
    for the Windows virtual machine.
  13. Click on
    Next
    .
    In this screen, you can review details for the virtual machine that is being created and go back to make changes if needed.
  14. Click on
    Install
    .
  15. Click on
    Close
    for the installation to proceed in the background.
    You will see a notification letting you know a new virtual machine was configured. The installation will continue on the background and you will be able to see the progress in the Virtual Machines screen.
Once installation is complete, the virtual machine will be powered on automatically. Use the
Actions
shortcuts to manage the virtual machine and access its console.
