Subject RE: Restore a VM from template
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2013 20:57:18 GMT
Not restore, but you can re-instance. Make a call to provision a VM from the template catalog.
It will be a new sequenced clone, not a restore. With CS you don’t really use VMs, the term
‘instance’ is actually quite correct. They are ‘stateless’ to the hypervisor, and
exist only in the DB. So in theory you could create a new VM and assign it the properties
of an old VM (risky to re-use records in DB).

Subject: Restore a VM from template

 

Is there a way to restore a VM from a template that was created from the API?
