  • How can I revert ESXi 5.1 to snapshot daily

    I'm trying (unsuccessfully) to revert a virtual machine to the previous snapshot every day/night. Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to do what I want. This is what I tried so far: - snapshot.action=autoRevert --> The VM has to HALT, REBOOT doesn't work the same. I don't want to power on my VM...

    Our team is using a Mac OS X and we're trying to figure out if it's possible to "clone" a virtual machine using VMware Fusion. We tried using the Finder to copy the VM's package structure but the problem was that the copy didn't appear in the VM library. What should we do?
