The Advanced page has different properties for different types of Providers. The differences are described below.

Hypervisor-based Providers:

  • Cluster Shared Volume (CSV), Network share: These two options appear if you are using Hyper-V Failover Cluster. They allow you to select a type of storage where hosts will be created. Select a desired option and then click the [...] button next to the edit field. Depending on the option selected, specify a Cluster Shared Volume or network folder. Note that a shared folder must be compatible with SMB 3.0. Please also note that the same credentials used to register Microsoft Hyper-V host as a Provider will be used to access the SMB file share for Hosts.

    Please also read the important note below.

  • Folder: This option is available if you are using Hyper-V, VMware vCenter, or Nutanix AHV (AOS). It specifies a folder where hosts will be created.
  • Use a separate network interface for LAN access: This option is available if you are using any of the Hyper-V or VMware providers. Specifies the network interface that will be used by Connection Broker and Provider Agent. This is useful if a template has several network interfaces and you want to use a specific one for communication with Parallels RAS. If you select this option, you also need to specify the following:
    • Address: IP address of the network interface.
    • Subnet mask: Subnet mask of the IP address.
  • Resource pool: Specifies a VMware resource pool.
  • Physical Host: Available for VMware vCenter. Specifies a physical host where hosts will be created.
  • Enable hardware acceleration graphics licensing support: This option is available if you are using VMware vCenter or VMware ESXi. Select it to allow vGPU-enabled hosts to unregister their vGPU licenses from the license server on shutdown.

Microsoft Azure Provider:

  • Resource group: Select an Azure resource group where the cloned VM will be created. Note that this must be a group to which you granted permissions to the Microsoft Entra ID app. For details, see Create a Microsoft Entra ID application.
  • Size: Select a VM size to be used for cloned VMs.
  • OS disk type: Select a disk type to be used for cloned VMs.
