Guys I am looking for some general advice and best practice.
I have a VMware environment with 16 hosts and about two hundred VM’s.
We are constantly deploying new servers for production testing and new applications. We typically retire and deploy about 8-15 servers per month.
I am looking for the best practice for deployment.
Typically I would create 1-3 master images and setup as templates.
I know when I use templates I must sysprep before final capture. The only thing is I need to update these images probably once per quarter or more frequently and I know that Microsuck has some limitations around number of times you can sysprep before we reach arm limitation.
Should we be using OVF or just templates?
What would you guys think is best practice?
Thanks in advance.
