I need to automate network setting on VMs.
Am trying to decide which of the below two methods is best suited for
Network Setting on VMs
|using VM Customization Spec||Power shell scripts using Invoke-Vm script|
|Doesnt require VM passwords||Requires VM password|
|better suited for fresh VM clone or VM from templates ??||On existing VM ??|
Based on your experience and awareness, could you help me with below qns
Which of the two is widely used ? Do you think there is a preferred approach for network setting ?
Is there any specific condition in which each of these approaches should be used ?
Any merits and demerits for each approach other than password ?
