I have two datastores at 2 separate locations that are both dedicated to storing vm templates. I am tired of updating all the vm templates in one datastore and then logging into a different datacenter and having to update this same templates all over again just because they are stored in two different datastores in two different esx hosts.
I want to update ONE set up templates then copy them to the other datastore.
I am fairly sure I can copy the folders containing the templates from one datastore to the other but I need to know if there are any 'caveats' in need to know before doing this. Keep in mind the templates in the two datastores have the same template folder names. Also, I see there is a .vSphere-HA folder in each datastore too. What do I do with that?
If I copy the templates from one datastore to the other, will they list as template folders in vSphere or do I have to do something special?
