SC VMM 2008R2 deploying VM from template unable to rename VHD during process
Posted on 2012-09-07
I have just installed SC VMM 2008R2 to manage my 2 node 2008 R2 Hyper-V cluster, I have created a Hardware Profile and a guest OS profile, i have created a template from an existing VM.
When i right click my template - New Virtual Machine it lanuches the wizzard, i then give the VM a name and click next, i am then onto the Configure hardware section, at this point when i try and edit the VHD details under IDE Devices its all greyed out, it shows the path to the VHD that is part of my template which is called "W2k8R2STD-Template_disk_1.vhd
So when i am deploying VM's from this template even though the folder on the CSV is unique for each VM the actual VHD's are named the same as my template
Im sure this cant be correct, can anyone point out where i may be going wrong.
