IT just setup vCenter 4.1 for my team. Using vSphere client, I:
- Created a VM (name: A)
- Cloned to a template
- Deployed a VM (name: B) from the template, checked the option to name the computer name same as the VM name.
- Once VM starts, its computer name is still "A"!!
- I had to rename and reboot it for the name to take effect
- This is not practical for me since I need to deploy over 20 VMs from the template
This used to work perfectly in 4.0, what am I doing wrong?
Also, can anyone please point me to a script sample I can use a baseline to create these 20 VMs in a loop from the template? and if there is no way to resolve the name issue described above, perhaps I can include the renaming code inside the script instead of doing it manually for each VM.
