VirtualCenter 2: Template Usage and Best Practices
Jun 4, 2006
This document will focus on the use of virtual machine templates in VMware Infrastructure 3. Virtual machine template functionality was redesigned in VMware Infrastructure 3 which includes VirtualCenter 2. In this context, a virtual machine template (usually referred to as simply a template) is a reusable image created from a virtual machine. The template, as a derivative of the source virtual machine,typically includes virtual hardware components, an installed guest operating system (with any applicable patches) and software application(s). New to VirtualCenter 2 is the ability to keep templates current with OS and application updates.
