Machine type and CPU type can now be set per virtual machine. Two new fields, 'Custom Emulated Machine' and 'Custom CPU Type' are available in the following windows, in the System tab:
- New/Edit Virtual Machine
- New/Edit Pool
- New/Edit Instance Type
The default setting for these fields is to use the cluster default.
Assigning to Tahlia for review.
In the same windows, the 'Cores per Virtual Socket' option is also now available. For more information, see BZ#1267165.
@Tahlia: yes, it is ok.
