You can use the following procedure to associate a library server with a host group in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). During placement, VMM uses this association as an input to help determine which resource to use when a resource with equivalent objects is defined in a profile or template.
Account requirements You must be a member of the Administrator user role or a member of the Delegated Administrator user role where the management scope includes the library server that you want to configure.
To associate a library server with a host group
Open the Library workspace.
In the Library pane, expand Library Servers, and then click a library server.
On the Library Server tab, click Properties.
In the Library Server Name Properties dialog box, in the Host group list, click the host group that you want to associate the library server with, and then click OK.
For example, associate the VMMServer01.contoso.com library server (located in Seattle) with the Seattle host group. Associate the NYLibrary01.contoso.com library server with the New York host group.
You can associate a library server with only one host group. However, child host groups are automatically associated with the library server of the parent host group. Also, realize that you can associate more than one library server with a host group.
