VMware templates are created on the ESX Server and linked with base system catalog
offerings to fulfill virtual machine requests.
Orchestration clones these templates to create virtual machines automatically from a system
managed by vCenter. Template records describe computer hardware features, such as hard disk
size and RAM. The base system automatically populates the VMware Virtual Machine Template
cmdb_ci_vmware_template] table with available templates when you run Discovery or the Discover vCenter Details
utility on the vCenter machine.
