Hi, does the vmware customization specification work if you deploy a vm directly from vcenter with that template?
vCenter Customization Specfications failing
Hello, has anyone been able to successfully use vcenter customization specifications with vSphere 6.5 U1? The setup is as follows:
vSphere 6.5 U1 Enterprise Plus and all guest network is going through a virtual distributed switch.
vOneCloud Appliance version 3.4
I have built my vm templates within vCenter with the following:
VMware Tools - Windows
Open-VM-Tools - Linux
I imported the templates into vonecloud and then set the vmware customization specification that I want. I go to do a test provision and the vNIC always comes up "disconnected" and the custom spec fails. I looked in the
and i see error finding the specified NIC for MAC address = [mac address]

Hi Mouyaq! Yes, the vmware customization spec works when I deploy a VM directly from vCenter using the template. The custom spec I have is setup to rename the hostname to match the virtual machine name and then enable the NIC for DHCP.
When I deploy directly from vCenter using the template and customizing with the custom spec it successfully changes the hostname and the VMXNET3 nic powers up on a "connected" state and gets an IP from DHCP.
When I try to deploy from vOneCloud using the same template and vmware customization spec. The hostname will get renamed with one-##-hostname,but then the VMXNET3 nic will power on "disconnected" and in the event logs it will show that the customization spec has failed.
Could you upload the .vmtx file of the template?
