We found that cloning a DC does not work well and that was confirmed by VMware. What I have done is deployed a 2008 R2 template and made it a domain controller. My plan is shut it down, make it a template once again and move it into my Lab Manager configuration. Once I have moved it into the test environment, is there any clean-up that must be done to the production environment?
I am assuming that if its the only DC as far as its eye can see, it will act as the only DC is the environment.
