5.3 Deploying a VM to the Warehouse Repository

The Warehouse Repository represents the VMs stored in the VM Warehouse Server. The Warehouse Repository is supported only by the Xen adapter.

If you have installed the VM Warehouse Server, then run Discover VM Hosts. The Xen adapter creates a Warehouse Repository named Warehouse.

If you run Discover VM Images on the Warehouse Repository, it displays the inventory of Gold Master VMs in ZENworks Orchestrator. These are the Gold Master versions stored in the VM Warehouse. The discovered Gold Master VMs can then be provisioned to VM Hosts.

VMs cannot run from the Warehouse Repository, so any provisioning actions must first export a VM from the warehouse.
