I have to clone a 2 TB Oracle Database VM at 3:00 AM.

Don't want get up at 3:00 AM just for clone.

Create a Scheduled Task to Clone a Virtual Machine

This procedure creates a scheduled task to clone a virtual machine.

  1. Start the vSphere client, and log in to the vCenter Server system.

  2. From the Home page, click Scheduled Tasks.

  3. Select File > New > Scheduled Task, or click New. The Select a Task to Schedule dialog box appears.

  4. Select Clone a virtual machine from the drop-down menu, and click OK. The Clone Virtual Machine wizard appears.

  5. Select the virtual machine to clone and click Next.

  6. Follow the wizard through the same steps as those in the previous task in which you cloned a virtual machine.

  7. Enter a name and a task description in the text box.

  8. Select the frequency of the task.

  9. Select Now or Later. If later, enter the time and date when you want the virtual machine to be deployed, and click Next. To see the calendar, click Later, and click the drop-down arrow to select a date from the calendar. A red circle indicates today’s date, and a dark circle indicates the scheduled date.

  10. Review the information on the Ready to Complete New Virtual Machine page, and click Finish.

Optionally, you can select the check box to power on the new virtual machine after it is created.
