Sorting things out in the library is a TechNet article by Microsoft Partner Kristian Nese and it talks about all the cool new features that are part of the library in SCVMM 2012.
With all the new features in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012, you will most likely use the library more intensively than you did in VMM 2008 R2.
The library contains some very interesting things you’ll want to be aware of:
- Service Deployment Configurations – When you’ve created your service templates (a group of machines that work together) you’ll have the templates ready for deployment, stored here.
- Service Templates – Includes machine definitions as well as applications (Supported application types are Web Apps (MSDeploy), Virtual Apps (Server App-V), and Database Apps (SQL DAC)
- VM Templates – Yes, it`s the good old traditional template. If you’ve basic VM templates, with no applications configured (your syspreped VMs), you’ll store them here.
