Do a document on new virtual machines (files, components etc)
As part of this looking to include a checklist which staff can use before deploying new virtual machines
We have our template, does anyone have a rough virtual machine checklist I can use as a reference before adapting it
Have a look at the free powershell tool "vCheck"
It has plugins that analyse various VM parameters.
You can use that as a reference as well as a tool to collect actual data of your existing VMs.
