comment Is there a way to clone an existing VM on an ESXi server without having to re-import it?
Rather than using cp, use vmkfstools.

comment Detach X11 app and reattach on another?
+1! I just set this up (well WinSwitch) on an Ubuntu server with an OS X client. It does exactly what I want!

comment Repair OS From Within VMWare
I don't know what you mean "or the image on the ESX installation?" Assuming a fairly default VM, when you boot your VM with a live CD your disk should be at /dev/sda from inside the VM. With sysrescuecd, it doesn't automount anything. So you would have to cd to someplace like /mnt, make a directory (do NOT mount something directly on /mnt!!!) under there, then mount the correct partition (like /dev/sda1). Finding the right partition could be tough, but if you know roughly how big it was, you could do 'fdisk -l /dev/sda' and look at the various partition sizes.

comment How can I create and mount a shadow copy from a batch file on Windows 7?
@Andrew: You caught me. It's for a single desktop, but I figured the ServerFauly folks would be more likely to have an answer than the SuperUser folks because mucking with VSS isn't something I'd expect a user to do. IIRC, Win2008 has a binary that'll do this from the cmdline, so that's why I specified Win7.
