I’m looking for some VMware documentation about the recommended or “best practice” for how long to keep a linked clone or instant clone VM around before either refreshing or deleting/recreating.
Does anyone know of where I can find this documentation?
I am looking for something straight from VMware because in my current env we have users logged into the same VM for 5 to 7 days before getting a new one. There are issues that the users have that are direct contributing factors to this and I am looking to change the way my company looks at virtual desktops. In other words, they think a virtual desktop is just like a physical machine in a sense where “I can have it on all the time and everything will be fine”.
I know that it’s highly recommended that clones vm’s are only to be used for 48 max in most cases because of the page file/OS disk filling up and causing issues. Cloned vm’s were never created to be left around for very long at all. I need some sort of documentation that proves what I’m trying to say that I can give to the right people to start making this change.
Any help is appreciated.
