Now we have the Hyper-V Clusters ready. We have the Fabric Configured to have a Logical Switch and VM Networks for each group.
The next step is to create a Cloud for each subsidiary group. The high level steps are as below.
1) Create Private Cloud for each subsidiary group with the appropriate network for each Cloud
2) Create Self Service User Role for each Group
Lets go in detail.
1) Create Private Cloud for each subsidiary group
Private Cloud will be the logical boundary for the consumer. Consumer will not be seeing anything beyond this stage. End user will create VMs on the private cloud.
Navigate to SCVMM -> VMs and Services – > Clouds
Click on Create Cloud
In the next page, Select the appropriate host group which will be used by this Cloud.
Proceed with the next steps and configure the optional components.
Select the Storage Classification.
In the next page, Select the Library Share which will be used by this cloud.
In the next page, Set the maximum capacity for the entire cloud.
Select the appropriate capability profile.
Finally, Verify the summary and proceed.
Similarly, we need to create a Private Cloud for S2-IT and S3-IT. While creating S2-IT-PriviateCloud, We need to select the appropriate Logical Network we created for S2-IT and while creating S3-IT-PriviateCloud, we need to select the appropriate Logical Network we created for S3-It.
With this, We are done with the creation of a Private cloud. Now we need to set up the access using a Self Service User Role, allocate the templates, Hardware Profiles, Gust OS Profile etc which will be covered in the next part. The below illustration gives a brief on the different fabric components which are getting linked to form a Private Cloud.
