Save an iso of vmware fusion VM

dzm asked:

I’m running VMWare Fusion and have an Ubuntu VM. I’ve setup a ton of configurations and would like to save this to an ISO to deploy to a production environment. Does anyone know if this is possible and what would be the best way to go about doing this?

Thank you!

My answer:


You don’t do it that way.

First, you automate your Ubuntu installation using preseeding.

Then, you use a configuration management tool such as puppet or chef to manage the machines on an ongoing basis.

As for deploying the web application itself, doing this right tends to be highly app-specific, and you really haven’t given enough detail to give a good recommendation.
