  • How to make an exact copy cloned of a VM from one ESXI server to Another

    Hi everyone,

    I have a lab vm that I need to clone. every time I clone it. it regenerates its licensing and breaks the licensing. I need to make an exact copy of a VM that we use in our lab for testing. any ideas or tools to do this?

    thanks

    Alan

      What exactly are you doing when you "clone" it?

      During the clone process are you making any customised changes to the cloned system?

      How does your product licence itself? I presume we're not talking about windows of course.

      Is this licence tied to the MAC address of the VM?
