Setting up a VMM library

A default VMM library is configured when you install a VMM management server. However, you can add more VMM libraries later on.

In VMM 2012, the library can store file-based resources, custom resources, templates and profiles, equivalent objects, private cloud libraries, self-service user content, stored virtual machines and services, orphaned resources and update catalogs, and baseline files.

Tip

It is strongly recommended that you use the Windows 2012 server for the Library Server OS as the VHDX does require Windows Server 2012.

This recipe will guide you through the process of configuring the VMM library.
