Create a blueprint for cloning the windows-2012r2-64 virtual machine using the specified resources on the Compute vCenter Server. Tenants can later use this blueprint for automatic provisioning. A blueprint  is the complete specification for a virtual, cloud, or physical machine. Blueprints determine a machine's attributes, the manner in which it is provisioned, and its policy and management settings. 

Repeat this procedure to create the following six blueprints.
