Cloning a vm via dcli – is it possible?

This post was originally published on this site

I asked an earlier question about cloning a live vm and received the answer to use powershell and powercli


Whilst that is a perfectly acceptable response, for several reasons that’s not really an option in our environment.


I have dcli up and running and it looks good. I can see the commands to create a vm but unless I am mistaken the commands do not exist to clone a vm.

Is that correct or is there some undocumented commands that can allow for cloning or even copying vmdk storage for a live vm?
