A.53 create VmCloneNetworkMapping

Maps the network that should be used by a virtual machine clone customizer.


create VmCloneNetworkMapping network=value vnic=value name=value [ description=value ] on vmCloneCustomizer instance

Where instance is:

{ id=value | name=value }


Creates a new network mapping for use by a virtual machine clone customizer. To create a clone network mapping, a virtual machine with an assigned VNIC must already exist within your environment.


The following table shows the available options for this command.




The name or ID value of an existing network to which the cloned virtual machine should be connected.


The name or ID value of an existing VNIC that is attached to the existing virtual machine that is this clone customizer's parent.


A name to identify the clone network mapping.


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


Optional description for the clone network mapping 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=MyVMCloneCustomizer.


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.


Example A.69 Creating a virtual machine clone network mapping

OVM> create VmCloneNetworkMapping name=MyCloneNet network=MyVMNetwork \
    vnic=0004fb0000070000277ecade9b897469 on VmCloneCustomizer name=MyVMCloneCustomizer
