  • How do I easily create a copy of my Virtual Machine without it causing the original to become unusable? I would like to be able to have another VM of the same for another user.

  • There are multiple methods for that but the most user friendly is making use of snapshots to create a new VM containing copies of the OS disk and data disks as described in this Petri article.
