Environment

Product Version

Synopsis

Lots of virtual machine templates are created in vSphere for each datastore i.e. sc-<GUID> / datastore-<ID>. These templates are uploaded multiple times.

Description

BOSH cpi [1] copies the stemcells [2for datastore locality reasons. In other words, the stemcells are then located closer to where the VMs will reside when cloning them.
