I'm still new to this VDI thing (version 3.4), learning a lot in a short time...however.
How does one get around the Windows XP requires activation for each cloned machine?
It complains that the hardware has changed enough to cause the re-activation to be required.
My process was:
Created a new machine in Vbox using install disk
Create machine to our domain
Register the machine
Remove machine from our domain
Increased memory from 192mb to 2048mb
Imported vbox machine as a template
Started template machine
Connected to console
Created machine in our domain - only way to get out to internet
Tried to activate windows - it said it was already activated...as I suspected
Removed from domain
Assigned template to pool
Assigned pool for cloning, selected version 1 (as it creates a version as soon as it imports the template)
Cloned 1 machine
Login on console
Complains about not being activated...stuck here
