Describe the issue:
The following URL in RHEL provides specific details on manually removing unique information from a VM to make it a template.

But the same information is not present in RHEL 8 docs creating confusion for the Customer on the steps to follow.
Suggestions for improvement:
Request for the instructions to manually remove unique information
The firstboot is replaced with gnome-initial-setup in RHEL8.
To configure the virtual machine to run configuration wizards on the next boot, we can remove the gnome-initial-setup-done file.
# rm ~/.config/gnome-initial-setup-done
It looks other configuration steps in RHEL7's document can use for my RHEL8.
