Hi Parth,

Nova doesn't take the pause/suspended state into account when returning a value for the "uptime" diagnostics value:

If you want to calculate uptime, note down server creation time from metadata and calculate the difference after change state.

Thanks Pandiyan.

when you are using same windows images ( Cloned) heterogeneous environment, need to run sysprep. If you can able to create template like Citrix & VMware then no need of those. But as of Sysprep is mandatory when u are using same cloned images ( carries same SID) under domain will create conflict

Hi Parthi,

Seems you want to Import Security Settings from .INF file, For that you have to create GPO file from inf file ( Take backup before that), below single line will do the needful

import-gpo -BackupId GUID -TargetName "Default Domain Policy" -path $ImportGPOPath

Create shell script by referring this script & change it to call your GPO file & don't forget it map it to unattended resource directory

Refer below wall paper unattended answer for reference

2016-05-24 09:00:40 +0300 answered a question Change windows hostname when creating instance from snapshot.

Hi,

Snapshot instance will hold hostname of the original image ( i.e the name given while building image from ISO), my answer is to prepare unanswered file xml and feed your hostname else get into cloudbase file and make tee the input, else you can prepare bootstrap script which run along while VM booting
