Repairing Cloud Virtual Machine Cloning Errors
One of the benefits of exploiting virtual system images is the capability to clone them so they can be reused in different environments. External data provisioning requirements such as network configurations like IP addresses can cause problems when cloning a virtual machine to use in a new environment. If the external data is not available during the process, the reconfiguration of the VM will likely incomplete.
This article offers a solution to repair cloud virtual machine cloning errors, even without much knowledge of the application or without a form of activation scripting to help. Runtime Image Activation (RIA) is a prototype command-line interface that lets you orchestrate networking techniques to make sure your cloned VMs are appropriately configured.
