Deploying VMs


To deploy VMs, you first create a reservation. When you request a reservation, Operations Manager calculates the

optimal placement for the reserved VMs. You can then accept the reservation to create an active or a pending reservation.


Operations Manager provides three ways to deploy VMs:

• Wait for the Deploy Date, so Operations Manager will deploy the reservation automatically

• Select an active reservation and click Deploy

• Create a reservation with a deploy date of today


Manually Deploying an Active Reservation



To deploy VMs from an active reservation, select the reservation in the list, and click Deploy. Operations Manager

then deploys VMs to the locations that are current for the associated reserved VMs.


Deploying VMs Today


When you define a reservation with a deploy date of today, Operations Manager calculates a deployment proposal. If

you then accept the proposal, Operations Manager immediately deploys the VMs to the locations that are described

in the proposal.



If you agree with the proposed VM deployment, click Deploy to create the VMs. You may have to wait a few minutes

while Operations Manager performs the deployment actions.


If for some reason you log out of Operations Manager, the deployment action completes anyway. When you log in

again, Operations Manager displays an alert telling you that you logged out while a deployment was pending.
