Is this for Windows or another OS?
For Windows, when you create a VM clone with an RSCD agent installed on it you typically:
- stop the RSCD service
- delete the local BladeLogicRSCD user
- shut down the system
- clone the system
You don't have to do this for Linux.
In your scenario, it may not matter. When you add the server into BSA it creates a unique ID of that server during the server Add. The agent gathers information about it (hostname, IP address, OS info, etc) and populates the database with that info. It's captured on the BSA database side, not on the agent side.
So, as long as you change the IP address and hostname before you add the server into BSA, you should be fine.
The server I am trying is a Linux RHEL 6 box.
So for Linux, I should just be able to shutdown, clone, and the add new server to BSA?
Yes, cloning a RHEL 6.x VM should work fine without having to uninstall or stop the agent. Once cloned, bring up the server and configure the network information, hostname and then add to BSA.
