Any caveat to creating a template out of an OVF and deploying a VM from it

Hey Folks,

I took a Linux based OVF and turned it into a template and deployed a VM from it. Now, I am having an issue connecting it to Druva (that part can't be solved here). What I am wanting to know is has anyone ever derployed a Linux based OVF from a template and if so are their any gotchas that I should be aware of? I know when creating a Windows based VM from a template sysprep will run at some point to scrub it but does Linux have a similar process?

Hi,

For Linux virtual machines, the creation of a customization to be integrated during the creation process should suffice:

However, you can also evaluate these Linux commands:
