From this tab you can add and remove virtual machines, and change the virtual machine startup sequence.

The list of virtual machines associated with the team is displayed on the left, in the order of the start-up sequence: the virtual machine at the top of the list is the first in the start-up sequence; the virtual machine at the bottom of the list is the last in the sequence.

Changing the Start-Up Sequence for a Team

To set the start-up sequence for members of a team

1. Choose Team > Settings.

2. Click Virtual Machines.

3. Arrange the virtual machine start order.

Select any virtual machine and use the Up or Down buttons to change the sequence.

4. Set the delay time between virtual machines.

Under Startup details you can set a delay time between each virtual machine and the next virtual machine in the start-up sequence. This delay is applied to power on, power off, suspend, and resume operations. The default delay is 10 seconds.

To change the delay, use the up and down arrows or type a number into the field. See Understanding the Start-Up Sequence Delay for a discussion of this option.

5. Click OK

Your changes are saved.

Note: The start-up sequence applies to team suspend and resume operations as well as power on and power off operations:

  • Team virtual machines power off and suspend in the reverse order of the start-up sequence, with the delays you set in Startup details.
  • Team virtual machines power on and resume in the order of the sequence, with the delays you set in Startup details.
