Making a Linked Clone of a Linked Clone

It is possible to make a linked clone from a linked clone, using the Clone Virtual Machine Wizard. Keep these cautions in mind:

  • Performance degrades when you do this. When possible, make a linked clone of the parent virtual machine.
  • To power on — and to work with — a linked clone of a linked clone, Workstation must be able to locate all ancestors in the chain. Refer to Linked Clones and Access to the Parent Virtual Machine.
