I am new to ESXI 5.0 and vSphere 5.0. (Infact I am new to this totally. Till date I have used only VMware Workstation.)
I have a new brand server kit with ESXI 5.0 installed and Vmware vSphere 5.0 client installed. I can connect to server kit.
There is nothing created in inventory. Fresh start up.
I have 5 different teams which need Clean windows 7 X64 and Clean windows server 2008 R2 X64 for their respective work.
I do not want to create "new machine" every time i.e. 5 Win 7 and 5 Win server2k8 machines.
What should I do? What is best practice you expert suggest? How should I manage these 10 virtual machines?
Also please share the basic documentation to learn this.
Thanks a lot in advance.
Using templates is probably the smoothest way for you.
