clone vm, now i need a unique identity

Dumb question, brain fart here. I cloned a windows vm in vsphere, now i have 2 vm’s, but only 1 AD computer account. How do I get another one for the clone? Sysprep it right?

  1. The easiest way would be convert your VM to template, then deploy a new VM from it. That goes through the sysprep process of making the SIDs unique.

    Otherwise you can run sysprep w the generalize option after the fact.
