Probably a very simply question and more of a sanity check. I have many Win 0S servers to perform OS upgrades on. Looking to do the following..
Ensure VM has ngt installed
Power down VM
Power up clone, perform OS upgrade
2 weeks later delete original VM
I assume the powered down VM doesn't actively contribute to CPU usage but storage will be ring fenced. Therefore I will see storage decrease whilst I'm upgrading VMS and before I delete the original.
Any disadvantages to making the cloned VM my new production VM rather than the other way round?
Is it ok to delete the original VM which the clone is being based off?
