SCVMM 2012 R2 In A Lab – How to Create a Host Group Structure in VMM


This is an extension to my SCVMM 2012 SP1 in a Lab series, as was requested by one of my blog subscribers.

To create a host group structure

Open the Fabric workspace.

SCVMM - Create Host Group - Fabric

In the Fabric pane, expand Servers, and then do either of the following:

  • Right-click All Hosts, and then click Create Host Group.
  • Click All Hosts. On the Folder tab, in the Create group, click Create Host Group.

SCVMM - Create Host Group - Servers (All Hosts)

SCVMM - All Hosts - Create Host Group

SCVMM - Folder - Create Host Group

VMM creates a new host group that is named New host group, with the host group name highlighted.

Type a new name, and then press ENTER.

SCVMM - New Host Group Folder

NOTE: To rename a host group, do either of the following:

  • Right-click the host group, and then click Rename.
  • On the General tab of the host group properties, enter the host group name in the Name box

SCVMM - Rename New Host Group

SCVMM - New Host Group Properties

Repeat the steps in this procedure to create the rest of the host group structure.

TIP: To create a host group at a specific location in the tree, right-click the desired parent node, and then click Create Host Group.

To move a host group to another location

Open the Fabric workspace.

SCVMM - Create Host Group - Fabric

In the Fabric pane, expand Servers, and then expand All Hosts.

SCVMM - Expand All Hosts

To move a host group to another location in the tree, do any of the following:

Drag the host group that you want to move to its new location in the tree.

Right-click the host group that you want to move, and then click Move. In the Parent host group list, click a parent host group, and then click OK.

SCVMM - Host Group - RightClick Move

Click the host group that you want to move. On the Folder tab, in the Actions group, click Move. In the Parent host group list, click a parent host group, and then click OK.
