Chapter 6. Creating a Desktop Template

This chapter takes you through the steps needed to prepare a virtual machine that can be used as a template for creating desktops.

If you have an existing VirtualBox virtual machine that you want to use as a desktop template, see Section 6.1, “Using an Existing VirtualBox Virtual Machine”.

If you have an existing virtual machine that was created in another virtualization platform such as VMware, and you can export that machine in Open Virtualization Format (OVF or OVA), see Section 6.2, “Importing an Existing Virtual Machine into VirtualBox”.

If you are unfamiliar with Oracle VM VirtualBox, see Section 6.3, “Creating a New Virtual Machine in VirtualBox”.
