Can I deploy the same virtual machine to multiple PC's running VMWare player without having network issues

Hi all,

I am a newbie so please forgive if this is a dumb question....

Can I deploy the same virtual machine (XP Pro), with the same machine name and GUID to multiple machines on a network without having issues like duplicate names errors etc etc. Or will I need to sysprep prior to deployment. If so is there an easier way of doing this ?

Not sure if it is important , but i need to use Bridged networking due to problems with our personal firewall.

You will need to deal with the dupe GUIDs. sysprep is one method.

Thanks !

I assume that the machine name will have to be unique as well ? If so i guess sysprep is the best method ?

Yes, the machine name has to be unique.
