A. To activate a resource-allocation policy that you've defined in Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM), in the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) Windows Server Resource Manager snap-in, right-click the resource-allocation policy and select Set as Managing Policy from the context menu. The resource-allocation policy entry in the treeview pane will now have "\[Manage\]" next to it.
To make the resource-allocation policy active, you need to ensure that WSRM is managing the system. To do so, in the Windows Server Resource Manager snap-in's treeview pane, right-click Windows System Resource Manager and select Properties. The WSRM Managing State should be set to Running; if the state shows another setting, right-click the Windows System Resource Manager entry and select Start Managing from the context menu.
