> On KVM, the virt-sysprep utility can be used to generalize a Linux VM disk image. In
RHEL and Ubuntu, this tool is included in the libguestfs-tools package and the man page is
here:
> http://libguestfs.org/virt-sysprep.1.html
> It would be useful if CloudStack could run virt-sysprep during the process of creating
a template from a KVM VM. Such an option could be added to the createTemplate API and as a
checkbox in the UI, and the person creating the template would not need to manually perform
the tasks handled by virt-sysprep. Additionally, it might also be useful to have the option
of running this tool on a VM immediately prior to booting it for the first time after deploying
it, since someone might want or need to use existing templates that have not have been properly
generalized.
