A.34 createTemplatesFromAssembly

Creates virtual machine templates from an assembly file.


createTemplatesFromAssembly assembly= { id | name }


This command unpacks all the virtual machine files from an assembly file and creates a virtual machine template for each source virtual machine in the assembly file. The templates are created in the same repository as the original assembly file. After unpacking the virtual machines from the assembly and creating templates, use the clone Vm command to clone and deploy virtual machines from each template.


The following table shows the available options for this command.



assembly= { id | name }

The ID or name of the virtual machine assembly file.


Any create command only creates a single instance of an object, and therefore only accepts a single object instance as an attribute. Providing more than one object of the same attribute type as a parameter always results in the last attribute value taking precedence.
