Express (unattended) VM Creation

Users who want to be able to create multiple identical VMs based on a custom VM template can bypass New VM wizard and use the Quick Create feature in XenCenter:

  1. Create a custom VM template that specifies all the configuration parameters you want for your new VM(s). See Creating new templates.
  2. Select your custom template in the Resources pane and, on the Templates menu, point to Create VM From Selection and then click Quick Create. Alternatively, right-click in the Resources pane and click Quick Create on the shortcut menu.

The new VM is then created and provisioned using all the configuration settings specified in your template.
