Cloning Hyper-V Virtual Machines the Right Way – Windows Server 2012 R2
Cloning of Virtual Machine using Hyper-V is not a one step process, but still nevertheless it’s easy as the following numbered list. But why this is required is something which is not explained in all the sites.
- Create a VM with intended Windows in Hyper-V
- Update the Windows VM
- Sysprep the Windows VM
Fortunately, I found an article series which explains the process as well as what goes behind the scenes. Even though the articles is targeted towards Windows Server 2003 and 2008, I found the article to be 100% relevant for Windows Server 2012 R2 as well.
The article is a 4 part article which you can check below.
