Description Paul Vine 2013-10-31 13:47:16 EDT
Description of problem:
Documentation does not state difference in selection between a desktop and server when creating a VM. This selection is talked about in the admin and user portal guides but no further information is given as to why a customer should choose one over the other. I can say that if server is chosen you do not get the start in full screen option for Spice.

Please disregard the last statement about full screen as it does appear in the context menu. But would still like to understand the difference.

Added an explanation of the 'Optimized for' setting. A screen capture will be needed to address the creating a new virtual machine section.
