How to create a VMware vSphere virtual machine utilizing all available features

Step 4: Choose a destination

After the virtual machine has a name, a basic location needs to be selected. If VMware's DRS is used in a cluster, they are enumerated in the resource pool to select for the virtual machine. If DRS is not used, host resource pools are available. Likewise, a vApp is a valid destination as well. If multiple datacenters are in use within the same vCenter Server; the context of the datacenter that the right-click initiated will be displayed.
