In the Last blog post ” Manage Self Service (Multiple) Private #Cloud with Tenants for in your datacenter with #SCVMM Part 1 of 2″ we talked about making Private Clouds with System center 2012 SP1 Virtual Machine Manager.
We now are going to the Self Service part, in System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 we still had Self service Portal option in the setup.
Since System Center 2012 is this option replaced by System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller.
More Technical Information about System Center 2012 SP1 VMM and App Controller you can download or read here
From here we are going further with the Private Clouds which we created with System Center 2012 SP1 VMM and create Tenant Cloud Users or Admins for Self Service with System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller.
Here is a Step by Step overview created with SCVMM for App Controller :
Create a User role in Tenants.
Give a Name and description
Select the Member(s) to manage the private Cloud
Here You can Select one ore Multiple Private Cloud(s) to manage.
Here you can set the Quotas for the Cloud
Select one or more Virtual Machine Networks
Here is the Virtual Switch selected.
Now we have selected Virtual Machine SCVMM2012SP1.
Here you select the permitted actions for the User role.
Here you can select Run As Accounts for the User Role to use.
Here we finish making the tenant user for the private Cloud.
Now we have made the Self User for this private Cloud, he or she can login in System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller to manage this Cloud with these settings.
We login as Labuser ( Self Service Account which we created with SCVMM )
The One Private LAB Cloud we Selected with SCVMM.
The Virtual Machine Labuser can Manage from SC APP Controller.
The Virtual Library Which Labuser can use for his Private Cloud.
When I login to System Center 2012 SP1 APP Controller as Administrator of Virtual Machine Manager, I see all the resources and Clouds like for example Windows Azure Public Cloud :
