Ubuntu – VMware Template Cleanup Script

Ubuntu – VMware Template Cleanup Script


Just sharing these scripts in case anyone ever needs/wants a quick way to prep an Ubuntu VM template with/without guest customizations. One script is just a shell script and the other is an Ansible play that can be used (Ansible Must be installed in guest).
