Configures the guest’s metadata disk.
Creates a transaction to configure the guest’s metadata disk. If the guest has user data associated with it, the transaction will create a small virtual drive and write the metadata to a file on the drive; if the drive already exists, the metadata will be rewritten. If the guest has no user data associated with it, the transaction will remove the virtual drive if it exists.
WARNING: The transaction created by this service will shut down the guest while the metadata disk is configured. The guest will be turned back on once this process is complete.
