To create a clone or duplicate of an existing server configuration.
Table of Contents
In RightScale, the term "server" is commonly used to describe a server's configuration. A server in the RightScale system (i.e. RightScale Server) is created using ServerTemplates as its base configuration. A server can either describe how an instance will be configured when it's launched into a cloud infrastructure or be a pointer to a running instance in the cloud. A server is simply metadata that lives within the RightScale system. When you clone a component in the RightScale system you're simply creating a duplicate or exact copy of its metadata. When you clone a server, you're creating another server that has a mirror definition as the server it was cloned from. If you clone a server that is referencing a running instance, the actual instance in the cloud is not duplicated; you're only making a copy of that server (definition) as it's defined at that particular point in time in the RightScale system.
Rename the cloned server appropriately.
