Copying Virtual Machines

Oracle VM Manager enables you to make copies of VMs based on existing working VMs. This can be done by either deploying a VM, cloning them outright, or saving a VM as a template.

By deploying a Virtual Machine, you essentially clone a new VM to a specific server pool—that could be public and may be accessible to a larger group or you can choose to keep it private. The original VM remains in its original pool while the copy goes to its new pool. Let's have a look at how it works:
