|Type||The type of virtual host connection that was selected when the Virtual Host Connection Wizard was run. This field cannot be modified.|
|Name||The name to use when referencing this virtual host connection by Provisioning Services.|
|Description||A brief description of this virtual host connection.|
|Host||The hostname or IP address of the virtual host connection server for Provisioning Services to contact.
To use a different port for the ESX server connection, in the server address field, enter the full connection string and include the correct port number. The format for the connection string is http://server_name:port/sdk
Note: If running a vCenter server on alternate ports, the following registry modifications must be made in order to connect to it from Provisioning Services:
|Datacenter||Optional. If an ESX hypervisor was selected, you have the option to specify the datacenter to use when connecting to the host.|
|Username||The account user name required to connect to the virtual host server.|
|Password||The account password that is associated with the username. The password must be a maximum of 32 characters.|
|Verify Connection button||Click this button to verify that the username and password entered are valid and allow communications to the virtual host pool server.|
|Update limit||Controls the number of virtual machines that can concurrently process updates. Any additional updates are queued and start as virtual machines complete processing.|
|Update timeout||The maximum amount of time allowed to perform an update to an image. If the update has not completed before the timeout period, the update is canceled. Maximum timeout = 240 minutes.|
|Shutdown timeout||The maximum amount of time to wait for the virtual machine to shutdown. If the virtual machine has not shut-down before the time-out period, the virtual machine will force a shutdown by the server.|
|Port||Sets the IP port number. This field is not available with VMWare vSphere/ESX.|
