VMware: Deploy Template grayed out 150 150 Roderick Derks
You can run into the problem when you want to deploy a VM from a template the options are greyed out, even after
restarting the vCenter services.
PowerCLI to the rescue:  
$templates = Get-Template *
foreach($item in $templates){
$template = $item.Name

#Convert Template back to VM
Set-Template $template -ToVM -RunAsync
#Convert Template back to template :S
$vmview = Get-VM $template | Get-View
$vmview.MarkAsTemplate()

}
Thnx to ictfreak
