I created a VM with from existing template and found that the image of

template. By that way, all the new VMs will share a common parent
image in template and save the space in the storage domain. Is there
any other concern not to do this?
Under Resource Allocation did you use Thin or Clone when creating the VM
from template? Thin will share the base and just use a cow image. Clone
will copy the VM.
note: the default resource allocation for a server is clone and for a
desktop is thin.
