Is there any way to be able to automate the cloning of Windows XP VMWare Machines that are part of an Active Directory domain?
The machines are part of a testing infrastructure. They should have the identical software installed and they should also be able to run simultaneously on the same network + domain.
If I just copy the "master" image and change the VM's MAC, I'll probably still have problems with AD.
Using a sysprep'ed image would lead to problems with the automation, since I'd have to get on the domain again.
This might be a problem without a solution, but maybe I'm just missing something.
p.s. using the free vmware server at the moment
