15 Windows 10 Template Tips for Administrative VMs

Submitted by on March 31, 2018 – 12:23 amNo Comment

I’ve been out of the template-making business for a while, but have recently had an opportunity to make a new Windows 10 template virtual machine (VM). I learned a lot during this process, so sharing those tips with you will hopefully help you out, too.

Let’s first narrow down the use case. When I say “Administrative VMs,” I’m referring to jump boxes, admin consoles and so on for use in a virtualized infrastructure. I’m not referring to Windows 10 VDI strategies for many like systems. This use case that I’m sharing is applicable to where Windows 10 systems are in the datacenter that you would work from for vSphere and Hyper-V administration. In my case, I’m using VMware View to access this Windows 10 system and after the 1709 update it was time to make a new template. This will provide me access to my vSphere and Hyper-V infrastructure (technically it’s a lab — but it’s production to me) by being on the same network and available to me anywhere (office, home, traveling — even on mobile devices).
