I have a virtual machine that I am cloning with the command line interface to virtualbox like so:
vboxmanage clonevm origVM --name origClone
However, the clone is added to the directory
~/Virtualbox\ Vms but not 'imported' into the list of virtual machines accessible by Virtualbox. By this I mean that it is not present in
vboxmanage list vms or in the graphical frontend.
Moreover, I have looked into import functionality, but this appears to be exclusive to bundled virtual machines of the filetypes
My general goal is to copy a virtual machine from a template
vm.ovf which has already been imported to be used in a multiuser environment. For instance, user1 has vm1 cloned from
vm.ovf and user2 has vm2 cloned from
vm.ovf and they can both work on their own vm "branches."
