Description Andrew Dahms 2014-08-01 09:08:01 UTC
I am raising this bug as a potential 'nice-to-have'.

The following directory on the Manager contains a list of files that act as templates for the sysprep function. My asusmption is that these files affect the function of the Sysprep options for Windows-based virtual machines, but we do not have any information on their location or how they interact with sysprep inside the Administration Portal.

Changing status back to 'New' until re-assignment.

Assigning to Megan for review.

Megan, this bug is closely related to the other items around sealing virtual machines for templates. We currently have a small amount of information about these sysprep template files in the VMM guide:
