The Best User Interface for your VMware Datacenter!
As an Admin, I want to use `New-VM` to create a VM from a clone on a different linked vCenter, so that I do not have to clone and then migrate.
I would like to be able to build a vm template ONCE, then use this or something similar to clone the template to the other vcenters.
I have a script that can validate EVC, check datastore freespace, configure multi NIC/PGs on the VM to new destination port groups and then Move the VM. We use the script to move VMs to different “non linked/Diff SSO domain” vCenters. I had to add an additional clone step on the source vCenter if I wanted to copy a template/VM to another vCenter. Maybe we can add a -clone to the move-vm command (ignore the last step of deleting the vm in the move task?) or update new-vm to accept the cross vCenter (and diff SSO domain) clone. We also use content library subscriptions to help with this but requires a lot more steps.
X-vCenter vMotion is already part of PowerCLI.
