What is the best way to copy VHD to create 2 virtualized-Terminal Servers
Posted on 2010-11-27
I have a virtualized Terminal Server (TS01) with TS01.VHD virtual hard drive. I want to make a copy of it and run it as if they both are two different Terminal Servers. My purpose was that each of them are independent from each other, so I will be able to install different applications on each of the TS.
What I did was copying the TS01.VHD to different folder and rename it as TS02.VHD, and then I created a new Virtual Machine:
- TS01.vhd is located in C:\Virtual HDD\TS01\ folder and
- TS02.vhd is located in C:\Virtual HDD\TS02\ folder.
So they both are located in different folder and have different name.
I turned the TS02 VM on, sysprep-ed it, and then I changed the computer name, IP address, and join to the same domain.
The problem is: When I run them both (TS01 vs. TS02) side by side, every time I create a folder on either one, it will also be created on another. This is not what I want. I want them to be independent to each other.
Does anyone know what step did I miss, or probably have a better way?
