Clone VM between Different ESXi Servers

Sometime the clone of a fully configured VM is convenient for us. There are two cases for cloning VM:

  1. Clone a VM inside a ESXi server;
  2. Clone between different ESXi servers.

For the 1st case, there is GUI guide inside ESXi server to lead you do that. However, it is also very simple to do the same job without a GUI, for both case 1 and 2.

Instructions:

  1. From the original folder, copy the .vmx and .vmdk files to your destination folder.
  2. Right-click on the .vmx configuration file. Select “Add to Inventory”.
