5 Creating a Server Cluster : 5.2 Cloning a Server Cluster : 5.2.1 Using a Template to Clone a Cluster

A clone deployed with a template will be an exact duplicate of the original master node, but will adhere to the cluster deployment rules described in the template by the system administrator. If you are a Template Only user, you will be required to use a template when cloning a cluster. A non-Template Only user may find it easier (especially when cloning a number of clusters) to use a template to define the properties that are common to multiple deployments.
