A VM Image that expires
Posted on 2011-02-20
I am looking for a solution (3rd party application, control mechanism, workaround, etc) that will help me have an expired VMWare Image for example in n number of days or some specific date.
I would like to provide a VMWare image to my customer which can be run in VMWare Workstation but I would like that image to be unusable (unbootable) after a specified date so that that image can only be used for demo purposes. (which means pausing the image or taking snapshots or exporting it must also not work after the specified date)
I am also hoping if there is a solution for this goal, the solution must be hard to hack or unhackable :)
