When I deploy a 2008 R2 VM using the RCU, and I choose the guest customization specification, the VM will clone, but the guest spec never gets applied. Is anyone else having this issue? Is this a known bug? We are running ESXi vSphere 4.1 and vCenter 4.1.

It doesn't even run. It creates the initial copy of image, creates the virtual machine file, copies the file, reconfigures the virtual machine, initializes power on, powers on the VM, and that is it. It never runs the spec.

That guest comment was mine, I forgot to login. So here is what I have found. I have a VM that I have prepared the way I want. I do the NetApp clone, and it will create the VM, but it will not apply the guest spec. If I then run the RCU against the VM I just cloned it DOES apply the spec.

The clone of the clone only worked 1 time. I am not quite sure how I got it to work, but I haven't been able to do it since. All I have is a 2008 R2 VM, it does not have any unsupported characters in the name, it is powered off, it has 2 disks on 2 different datstores on the same controller. The cloning works every time, but I have only seen it launch the customize VM that one time.

What do you see in the kamino.log file? Is there an error that looks like this:
Unable to customize <clone name> using <cust spec name> due to RuntimeFault.
If so, this will be fixed in the 2.0.1 P1 release that will be available in the next week or so. If not, could you contact NGS or post some snippets from the log so I can help you diagnose the problem?

The log file is loaded with stuff, but yes, that error does appear in the log when I searched it. Could you please post on this thread when the P1 release is available?
