Virtual Labs Overview

The Virtual Labs feature provides virtual machine users with the ability to create and manage their own network of virtual machines, called a virtual lab, from a user-friendly interface. Administrators set up pre-defined templates to control configuration settings, such as disk space, and to effectively manage resources. After a Virtual Lab Policy, is created, end users can build and customize their own virtual labs in the Virtual Machines application on Web Console. In your environment, if there are multiple tenants where users have installed virtual machine clients, those tenant users will see only the clients and virtual machine resources that they own. For more information, see Multi-Tenant CommCell Environment.

Virtual Labs is available only for Amazon, Hyper-V, and VMware Virtual Server agent types.

IP Masquerading

IP Masquerading is a form of Network Address Translation (NAT). It provides a way to modify addresses and port numbers in IP packets. With these modifications, one Linux machine can act as a gateway between a private network and a public network (accessible externally). This means that all of the machines on the private network can inconspicuously reach the public network through the Masqueraded IP addresses configured on the Gateway.

IP Masquerading is currently supported for Hyper-V and VMware virtual server agent types.

To enable IP Masquerading for Hyper-V:

  1. Create a Lab Policy with IP Masquerading enabled. For more information, see Creating a Restore as Lab Policy for Hyper-V.

To enable IP Masquerading for VMware:

  1. Create a Lab Policy with IP Masquerading enabled. For more information, see Creating a Restore as Lab Policy for VMware.
  2. Create a Dev-Test group associated with the policy that you created in the previous step. For more information, see Creating Dev-Test Groups.
