Duplicate a VM

You may want to repeat or duplicate the configuration of an existing VM and use it for a new one.  One way to do this is to clone an existing instance but cloning will include everything--installed software, logs, data, etc.-- and you may not want that.  To duplicate, merely click on the "Launch More" tab on a system you wish to repeat.  This will initiate the build process but all of the configuration options from the model VM--pre-shared key, security group, service offering, etc.--will added to the form for you.  You can then accept or change these as you wish.
