Downloading and Configuring a Tiny/Small guest VM for guest VM operations automation in VMware

It’s very common an administrator would like to automate various of VM operations.  However, some of the activities like copying/Cloning/Snapshoting/Backing up a VM would be a very time consuming if you have a huge VM image to deal with.
