Cloning a vm via dcli – is it possible?

This post was originally published on this site

One of the blogs Considerations for vSphere Component Backup and Restore: Part 1 – VMware vSphere Blog  suggests the Datacentre CLI ( dcli) can be used for backup purposes.

Having looked through all the available commands with this api like interface I am not so sure. I can see that you can create a vm but backing up or cloning a vm seems to be missing.

Is the blog correct and there is some undocumented command that allows for vm cloning?

 

Thanks
Paul
