        This Test Lab Guide (TLG) allows you to create the Base Configuration test lab, upon which you can build test labs based on other TLGs from Microsoft, TLG extensions in the TechNet Wiki, or a test lab of your own design that can include Microsoft or third-party products. For a test lab based on physical computers, you can image the drives for future test labs. For a test lab based on virtual computers, you can create snapshots of the base configuration virtual machines. This enables you to easily return to the base configuration where most of the routine infrastructure and networking services have already been configured so that you can focus on building a test lab for the product, technology, or solution of interest.
