Poor man's VMWare VM cloning

1) Copy the entire directory.
2) vmware-vdiskmanager -n Windows\ Server\ 2003\ Standard\ Edition.vmdk W2K3_R2_Clone1.vmdk
3) Open the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition.vmx file and change the disk image parameter to point to the new disk:
scsi0:0.fileName = " W2K3_R2_Clone1.vmdk"
#scsi0:0.fileName = "Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition.vmdk"

4) Give the cloned VM a new name in the Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition.vmx file:
displayName = "W2K3 R2 Enterprise Edition - Clone1"
#displayName = "W2K3 R2 Enterprise Edition"

5) Change the name of the VMX file:
mv Windows\ Server\ 2003\ Standard\ Edition.vmx W2K3_R2_Clone1.vmx

Start it up.

Run the sysprep utility.
