PowerCLI – Clone VM

I had to figure out how to make sure that VM with vCenter server is protected against software failure. I could use vCenter server hearth beat but is expensive and I don’t need super hiper HA for my vCenter server. I decided to use PowerCLI to make a clone of vCenter server virtual machine and keep two copies. Thanks to my colleague Grzesiek from http://psvmware.wordpress.com who helped me out with a script.
