Who wants scheduled Cold-Clone-Imports ?

Just stumbled about the idea from another thread

http://communities.vmware.com/thread/132220?tstart=0

Anyway - it is no problem to do this:

__ copy a 300Mb file to a physical box

__ run a short wizard asking for details

__ schedule a reboot

__ reboot a given time

__ boot into a ramloading pe without having to change BIOS !

__ run converter and do a coldclone into ESX

If there is serious interest ... only thing missing is the wizard asking for details.

Procedure would need 2k3-sp2 and latest Converter - starter edition

Nobody interested ? - I just finished MOA 2.3 and it would be a good timing to add this feature now ...

Hi,

Just wanted to say a couple of things:

Awesome work, and amazing ideas.

I have known about MOA very recently and still trying to get some experience with it, an impresive tool you have created.

Now the job is on our side; hopefully I can leave some feedback with my experience.

Thanks,

Hi and welcome iborrero

If you need any help please let me know.

There are several ways to scheduled ColdClones - using Converter is only one
