VM Duplication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am in an unusual situation where I need to create a virtual machine and deploy it to several hundred servers as a clone with a different name.

    Being fairly new to system Centre, what approach would you recommend is best for me to take?

  • Cheers Gerry - will look into it.  Do you have any suggested reasing materials or resources?

    My (rough) spec is that I need to join these hundreds of machines to the domain and have SQL server, iis and a few other offs and ends installed on them.

    Until now, my plan was to use powershell to create the VMs and VHDs and send those commands as a package to all the hosts in config manager, which I would then PXE boot and image (somehow - hopefully not manually!)  Obviously, this plan has more holes than my socks, so I was hoping for something smarter!
