Always been the company's test MM upload system in the new virtual machine, the Lei Ya, look at the heartache ... on the Internet for a moment believe google taught, it is trivial to find the tutorial twice, but in English , the simple translation of what to tell it. the level of a little time, can read on-line!-_-
There are two ways to clone Hyper-V virtual machines:
1. Through the Hyper-V import / export capabilities to achieve the virtual machine
2. Copy the VHD (Virtual Hard Disk) file, the new virtual machine and configured to use a copy out of the VHD file.
1. Using the Hyper-V import / export function clone a virtual machine
This is a simple way to clone a virtual machine. But it has one small drawback, this method can only import system derived from the Hyper-V virtual machine.
First, export the virtual machine
Open the Hyper-V Manager, right-click a virtual machine, and then select Export. Select the save path to export the virtual machine. A bit first to emphasize, when you save the path to import from the virtual machine, the virtual machine and also the path of VHD will be set up to here, instead of the default path. (Translator Note: R2 has the option copy the virtual machine file, which automatically copied to the default path)
When exporting the virtual machine, you can choose to only export the virtual machine itself, rather than export VHD. When you want to re-establish the VHD to install a clean environment, and in this way is especially useful.
Import the virtual machine
To import a virtual machine, the first Hyper-V Manager from the context menu, select "Import Virtual Machine." And then select just the path to export the virtual machine, point of import.
Re-emphasize that, before this path is the path to export the virtual machine, not inside any of its subdirectories.
Virtual machine import is completed, you can do to change it, like other virtual machine settings. Note that if the new virtual machine into the original virtual machine is in the same virtual network, then
When the original virtual machine has been the case to open a new line into the virtual machine, the new virtual machine into the network will be unavailable. You can import the new virtual machine to modify the host name (hostname) and IP address to avoid these network problem.
2. Copy the VHD and create a new virtual machine
This is a quick but rough method for cloning. This method simply copied from the original virtual machine VHD file, and then create a new virtual machine, use this instead of copying out the new VHD VHD. To create a virtual machine, and then in the wizard select "Connect Virtual Hard Disk", select "Use an existing virtual hard disk" and then set the copy of the VHD file out of the path.
