Virtual Container Host Deployment Options

You use the vic-machine create command to deploy virtual container hosts (VCHs).

The vic-machine create command provides many options that allow you to customize the deployment of virtual container hosts (VCHs) to correspond to your vSphere environment and to meet your development requirements. The following sections present the vic-machine create options, grouped by subject area.

Specifying Option Arguments
