Virtual Machine Creation


1.       When you will click on the vSphere client icon on the client machine you have to enter the IP address of the ESXi host, username and the password for the authentication. Then you will login into the ESXi host. If you are using the vSphere client to connect to the vCenter directly you have to enter the IP address of the vCenter server instead of ESXi host.
2.       Right Click on the Host and Select New Virtual Machine
3.       You can create a new virtual machine using the common default settings or customize the options .The Typical path shortens the process by skipping some choices that rarely need changing from their defaults. The Custom path provides more flexibility and options.
