I run VMWare Workstation 6.5 on WinXP.
How can I script a way to automatically clone my VM images?
I've read about the "vmware-cmd" tool but believe that is only available with VMWare ESX, not Workstation.
Use "vmrun" command. There's an article you may find interesting: https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-PowerCLI-Discussions/Clone-a-VM-with-a-script/m-p/509187 writemyessay.onl. Are you looking for something like this?
Emma, have you read through our VMware Communities site by chance? It's where people share information about VMs https://gfbninja.com. I can't really comment on scripts since 6.5 is rather old! And for Windows XP, I'm not 100% sure if VMware still supports that version of Windows. Good luck!
