New VM paths based on VM name (template)
Our storage logic is to keep each VM with all their files in a single folder, so paths look like:
... where $VMNAME$ is placeholder for, well, VM name, so getting folders like:
At the moment we have to manually do this for every new VM.
It would be awesome if at some point WAC's "default paths" settings would support having ability to have such "templating" style of paths. So if VHDs default path is entered with "variable" it auto-magically creates folder for each VM's files.
Depending on internal organization, this could be eg.
or could be
or anything else, as possibilities would be endless.
For me, supporting a variable for VMNAME would be perfect, but maybe others have something else on their minds as well.
P.S. We really dislike the default file organization logic that Hyper-V has, sorry :)
