Cloning a vApp is similar to cloning a virtual machine. When you clone a vApp, you clone all virtual machines and vApps in the vApp.
When you clone a vApp, you can add the clone to a folder, standalone host, resource pool, cluster enabled for DRS, or another vApp.
Verify that one of those objects is available in your datacenter.
A standalone host that is running ESX 3.0 or greater.
A cluster enabled for DRS is selected.
- Navigate to a DRS-enabled cluster, right-click the cluster and click .
- On the Select a creation type page, select Clone an existing vApp.
- On the Select source vApp page, select an existing vApp to clone, and click Next.
- On the Select destination page, select a valid host, vApp, or resource pool in which to run the vApp, and click Next.
- On the Select a name and location page, type a name for the vApp, select location, and click Next.
- On the Select storage page, select the virtual disk format and the target datastore and click Next.
- On the Resource allocation page, allocate CPU and memory resources for the vApp and click Next.
- On the Ready to complete page, review the vApp settings and click Finish.
