In vmware view terminology, they use the term Replica. well I am not referring to Replica server.
If I understand when you go about configuring Linked clone, you will have first to :
Prepare the Master image , for instance windows 7.
Turn the VM off
Take snapshot of it
Add a Pool , this will take you through a wizard, where you browse to the snapshot and Master image..and follow the wizard.
I do not see where the replica comes into play.
I just wonder when they say replica if they refer to Master Image.
Any clarification ?
