Customize a vmware virtual machine

Hi All,

Currently I am creating the virtual machine directly from the VMDK which are on the datastore. The VMs are created and booted perfectly.

But I also want to customize them and provide new static IP address.

I am unable to use the clone as I dont have any templates.

Is there a way in which I can achieve the above.


I hope the use case is clearly explained, any help is appreciated.
