Ok I have a few questions on cloning a windows 2003 server for use as a template, going foward.
1) Does cloning pertain to the OS and all installed programs? An exact duplicate, in terms of hard drive size, network settings, everything in totality?
2) are there any issues with SID numbers after cloning? If so, what's the best way to address this?
3) If I clone a machine and then find that I need a smaller or larger hard drive setting, is this as simple as going to "edit settings" and changing that stuff?
3.5) What about volumes? If I clone a machine that has a C: drive, is it difficult to edit one of the cloned copies to have a C: and D: drive which are different sizes than the original?
4) What's the difference between "cloning" and "cloning to template"?
