Is there a way to accellerate the cloning process for VMs on vxRail? This would be regular server VMs, Horizon is not involved.
How long does it take?
1 to 1.5 hours for a 600G vm. All flash. The environment runs jobs, then we blow it away and redeploy with powerCLI off templates.
Yeah that's crazy long, I know 100 gb horizon clones finish in under 1 min, This says director but its the same logs every where I think
VMware Knowledge Base
See if you can find the guest customization log, it should show what happens right after the vmfork operation.
