VMFork aka Instant Clone Community Customization Scripts
This repository contains a collection of community contributed OS customization scripts that are to be used with VMware's Instant Clone PowerCLI Extension Fling.
- vSphere 6.0 (vCenter Server + ESXi 6.0)
- [PowerCLI 6.0 Release 1] (https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/get-download?downloadGroup=PCLI600R1)
- [Instant Clone PowerCLI Extensions] (https://labs.vmware.com/flings/powercli-extensions)
How it works
Each top level directory represents an OS which has been tested against the Instant Clone PowerCLI Extension cmdlets. Within each directory, it should include a minimum of a pre and post-customization script along with the a corresponding PowerCLI driver script which demonstrates the use of the pre/post script. There may be additional scripts that are included which should have further instructions added to a notes.txt file.
Here is an example of an Instant Clone customization script for ESXi 6.0. Each script should contain the OS name as noted at the top level directory.
├── esxi60 │ ├── notes.txt │ ├── post-esxi60.sh │ ├── pre-esxi60.sh │ ├── prep-esxi60.sh │ └── vmfork-esxi60.ps1
To use the ESXi 6.0 Instant Clone customization script, you would run the PowerCLI driver script like the following:
