Clone Support

Support for cloning things is weak:

  1. VBoxManage clonehd is painfully slow
  2. There's no GUI interface to it
  3. There's no interface at all to cloning whole machines (with all settings) other than exporting to an .ova and reimporting --- which is slow

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to duplicate
  1. Cloning a hard disk is always slow as the complete virtual disk image needs to be cloned (i.e. read + written).
  2. Duplicate of #449.
  3. Duplicate of #5853.

w.r.t. #1, I just checked it against doing a regular file copy, and I think you're right: I just overestimated the speed I could expect from my hardware. Sorry for the noisy ticket.
