Managing lab resources

You can track the resources in your lab using the lab management tool. You can create data for physical machines and virtual images, search for resources with specific configurations, and manage requests. If you have administration permissions, you can create reservations for lab resources. If you are integrated with an external provider application with virtualization capabilities, you can work with virtual machine and image collections. If you are integrated with provider applications that provide deployment and inventory capabilities, you can update lab resource data to display the latest lab resource configurations and new lab resources that have been added, and you can run scripts, projects, or libraries that are configured in the external provider applications on remote lab resources.
