Pivotal Cloud Foundry® vSphere Virtual Templates

Environment

Pivotal Cloud Foundry® Ops Manager (vSphere) Versions 1.6.x and 1.7.x

Synopsis

There are many virtual machine (VM) templates that are created in the 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.
