Hi Experts,

I'm looking to find a PowerCli script that can help me deploy multiple vm's from a template.
each provisioned vm will have unique name i.e CS_VM_Customername
vm's to be deployed asynchronously

All disk, memory nic settings are already in the template.
Is there a way to do it?

Thanks.

It is in powercli New-VM command.
Just make sure you have VAAI driver and clone in place where VAAI works, e.g. same NFS share. Otherwise the vm disks will be copied over host, with many clones yielding that one host nearly unusable while clone is in progress...
