Adding an Existing Virtual Machine to a Team

To add an existing virtual machine to a team:

1. Select Team > Add > Existing Virtual Machine.

A file open dialog box appears.

2. Browse to the folder with the .vmx file for the virtual machine you want to add.

3. Select the .vmx file and click Open.

The virtual machine is added to the team.

There are some issues to consider when you add a virtual machine to a team.

  • A virtual machine is not powered on when you add it to a running team. You must power on the added virtual machine manually to use it during the current session. However, the added virtual machine is thereafter powered on or off with the rest of the team.
  • When you add a virtual machine to a team, you can no longer operate the virtual machine outside the team. Adding a virtual machine to a team therefore removes it from the Favorites list.
