We're finally moving from NW65/ZW7 to OES/ZCM at all our remote sites (central site has been ZCM for a while now.) Our site servers are all running VMware 5.1 with an OES virtual machine. Is there any reason to NOT use the pre-configured virtual appliances? It seems like a lot less work to spin up a bunch at once since we won't have to do all the OS install and config. I know you lose some of the SUSE management features, but these will only be used for ZCM and patched accordingly with the ZCM updates. It seems like a no brainer, but I just want to be sure there are not any other gotchas.

Thanks,
Jason
