VMware ESX-Cloning Virtual machines


·         Cloning a machine is simply creating a duplicate / copy so that another VM can quickly be created

·         Reasons for cloning :

o   Quickly create a new VM

o   Prevent OS rebuild

o   Create a server farm

o   Create test servers


·         Types of cloning:

o   Internal ESX cloning (see clone to new VM option)

o   V2V-virtual to virtual:

= VMware Server to VMware ESX Server

= Virtual Server  to VMware ESX Server

o   P2V – physical to virtual

·         Cloning different than migrating
 

Right Click on the VM-> Clone to a New Virtual Machine (A new machine is created!).
