VMware Template Creation and Management?
Posted on 2009-05-07
To begin, I know very little about VMware ESX and next to nothing about Linux.
I just built a new ESX 3.5 server.
I already have one VM running that was migrated over from our VMware Server using the converter tool (very nice).
Now I am building my first 2003 Windows server that I plan to use as a template for future 2003 servers.
How do you create copies of VMs running or resident on the ESX server? I had planned on creating a base 2003 server install and then copying and renaming the VM for each new 2003 VM server but I do not see how to do this.
Can this be done using the VMware Infrastructure Client or VMware Web Access without having to go into the console using Linux commands?
