Cloning a HD image in Virtualbox 3.1.6
To create multiple appliances for the upcoming RootWars I needed to replicate the base image. VBoxManage to the rescue!
VBoxManage clonehd —format VMDK RH9.vmdk IGSrootwars1.vmdk
It assigns a new UUID which is the important part when launching duplicate images. This took about 5 minutes per image to complete.
