Description Anitha Udgiri 2021-04-30 15:56:02 UTC
Document URL: 

Chapter 8. Cloning virtual machines Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 | Red Hat Customer Portal

Section Number and Name: 

8.2. Creating a virtual machine template

Describe the issue: 

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

Chapter 4. Cloning Virtual Machines Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 | Red Hat Customer Portal

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

Additional 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.
