I am trying to figure out what is the best way to clone a VM that could have any number of nics attached to it. I also don't want to set any of the NIC settings for the Network Adapters. I would like it to use the same settings as the original vm. I have a process to disable the nics before it is powered on to account for any ip issues. I want to beable to run a sysprep on the system and set some of the customizations just not the NIC ones. Thanks
OK so I have still not had any luck. Anyone know of anyway I can copy the nicsettingmap from my sourse vm? If you clone a system and provide no specification it copies the settings. I guess the other option is to create a mapping for dhcp for each NIC but how do I get the mac of the nic before it is cloned? I am not sure if I am missing something or not but all I want to do is clone a machine and run a sysprep on it with basic settings. I don't need to change the NICs because they will be disabled and changed at a later time.
