  3. Great Video!
    Once you add data to the vitual machine, can you still add more disk space to the virtual machine? We deployed some virtual machines, but lately we have been getting errors that we are running out of space. My question is, if we modify the settings of the virtual machine, will it affect the data we have on that machine?? Please help!!!!!

  4. Hi, thanks for this informative video. I got a question maybe you can help me, i'm looking to install 100 virtual machines (both 50 OS X and 50 Windows) on single host running OS X. What would be the fastest way of doing so? How can i install so many virtual machines quicker then installing them one by one. I tried cloning, but cloning gives me the same Hardware UUID, which doesn't work for me.
