A.52 create VmCloneCustomizer

Creates a clone customizer for a virtual machine.


create VmCloneCustomizer name=value [ description=value ] on Vm instance

Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }


This command allows you to create a new clone customizer for a virtual machine. When the clone customizer is created, you may want to create clone network and storage mappings that can be used by the clone customizer. See Section A.53, “create VmCloneNetworkMapping” and Section A.54, “create VmCloneStorageMapping” for more information.


The following table shows the available options for this command.




A name to identify the clone customizer.


To find this name after the clone customizer is created, use the list VmCloneCustomizer command. You need the name or ID of this to delete a clone customizer from a virtual machine with the delete VmCloneCustomizer command.


Optional description for the clone customizer object. value is a maximum of 4,000 characters.

{ id=value | name=value }

The instance of the object using either the id or name option, for example name=MyVM.


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.
