When you have a virtual machine template an/or an ISO file that contains an the installation files for an operating system, you can create a virtual machine. If you use a virtual machine template, you need to clone the template to create a virtual machine. if you use an installation source ISO file, you can create a virtual machine directly from the ISO file. The examples in this tutorial first use a template, then an ISO file to create virtual machines. A final example shows you how to start a virtual machine and connect to the virtual machine's console.
