5.0 Understanding Autoprep

In the PlateSpin® Orchestrate Development Client, “Autoprep” refers to the function of preparing unique network settings for Linux VMs on VM hosts so that the VMs can be provisioned by the provisioning adapter without creating network conflicts. As the administrator, you can set “facts” in the PlateSpin Orchestrate Development Client that can later be automatically applied to a VM clone during a Provision or a Clone action from a VM template. The Autoprep facts can also be manually applied to an existing VM by using the Personalize action.
