    If I have a support group provide my group several VM servers and we do not have VM ESXi admin access, can a VM ESXi administrator aces/view our server data or data store storage directly or indirectly? What risks do we run if we require our data non-viewable?

  • Clone virtual machine on VMware ESXi server

    We've just imported a virtual machine into our ESXi server using the converter utility. But since I need several copies of this specific VM, can I clone it? If so, how can I do that? Or do I actually have to re-import it each time?
