How can I clone my Virtual Machine?

This article will explain how to clone or copy your virtual machine. This can be useful if you need another machine exactly the same. But sometimes it can cause issues...

There are currently two ways to clone your virtual machine (VM):

  1. Doing it yourself using the advanced tools in vCloud Director; or
  2. Logging a support ticket with the operations team.

Please note that when you clone a machine it can cause issues with the SID of the machine being a duplicate, this is more of a problem in Windows Domain environments but is worth considering.  There are ways to remedy this through customisation on first boot.
