I created a template from an existing VM (Windows 2008 R2) and stored it in the library. However every time I create a new VM by using this template on which guest OS profile configuration is applied, I get a VM with the same VHD disk name as the original VM. The problem is, that the original VHD name contained the original server name. So every new VM created out of this template has a VHD with the origial server name. This can be kind of confusing.
How can I rename the VHD either before I create a new VM out of the template or after I created the new VM? I can't as SCVMM has no mecanism to rename a vhd in the process of creating a vm from template.
VMM is creating a folder by the name of VM when the vm is created and copies the VHD there. But the VHD gets the name of the template and still, it is confusing no matter what. Of course I can use the full path to vhd to identify which VM it is associated with. But it's really not the way to go. I hope Microsoft will fix this up in the next release / uppdate.
As SCVMM doesn't care about VHD names, is there an easy way to rename it ?
