Template creation from a Virtual Machine

Template  creation from a Virtual Machine:

Before creating a template out of a virtual machine, we need to delete unique stuff related to a VM. For example, hostname, mac address, UUID.

You can use the following commands to make it generic enough and then save the template.

hostnamectl set-hostname localhost.localdomain

Remove the entries starting with 'UUID" & "HWADDR" in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 ( on all the interfaces, in case of more than one NIC available ).
