COPY a VM from library server to host ???

Hi All ,

              I wanted to know if there is a Powershell script which deploys a VM from library server onto a host , but still keeps a copy in the library server. "Move-VM" would move it and I dont think cloning ("New-VM") is possible on a VM in a library server ?? Any ideas ? My basic aim is to create a copy of a VM (residing on a host) onto a library server (which I can achieve by cloning on library server) and later re-deploying on the host (delete the old VM if it exists and deploy the one from the library server) , but still keep a copy of it on the library server.

The only way I can think of is deploying onto the host and again cloning onto the library server
