How destructive is sysprep to the original machine
Posted on 2009-04-15
I would like to use sysprep to duplicate a virtual machine (server 2003) that I have running in Hyper-V.
The machine has quite a lot of configuration including IIS etc. It is currently called (Dev01), I would like to make a copy of it calling it (Dev02) but I need to ensure the Dev01 virtual machine is completely intact and not destroyed in anyway.
If I run sysprep, will this cause a problem or rephrased, what do I expect to happen to Dev01 once I run Sysprep.
