Managing Windows Server VM templates with Packer - Part 1

Introduction We all know the immense pain of managing Windows Server VM templates, regardless of the platform you're using. Sure, you can build them once then update them manually on a schedule. However, it's tedious to document and even worse to execute, making sure the template is identical every time (except for your new updates of course). In my experience, you also have to maintain multiple versions and editions of Windows Server.
