     84== 2. Reserve Virtual Machines at Two Aggregates ==
     85
     86For this tutorial, we have manually reserved a VLAN (a layer 2 circuit) from a GENI rack in Utah (''Utah InstaGENI'') to a GENI rack in Massachusetts (''GPO InstaGENI'').
     87
     88Now reserve a virtual machine (VM) connected to each end of the manually configured VLAN.
     89
     90'''WARNING: In order to pace the creation of the VMs, please only reserve your two VMs when you are given a "blinking ball" by the tutorial instructor. '''
     91
     92First, reserve a VM on the Utah end of the VLAN.  This node will be refered to as the "client".
