  • VM Refresh - I use this term when discussing updating VMware tools or the virtual hardware of the VM
  • VM Parking and Unparking - When a VM is no longer needed to be an active powering it down andpossibly moving it off od your ESX hos or to non primary storage is parking and moing it back to production is unparking
  • VM Export - is when you export a VM to move it to another virtual hyperviosr - such as converting a VM on worrkstation to an OVF format and importing to an ESX server
