Hi to all,
First of all, I'd like to apologize for my poor English... I'll try to be as comprehensible as possible.
Here is my problem... I just installed Rapid Cloning Utility 3.0 on our ESX 4.0 environment (with Virtual Center 4.0 Update 1).
When I try to create a new server from a template using RCU, the Customization Specifications are not applied... I watched all the videos on the internet and I noticed a difference. On the videos showing the cloning process, the example is based on a Windows XP guest. On these computers, the customization specifications are based on a "sysprep.inf" file. For Windows 7 gests or Windows 2008 servers, the customisation specifications are based on XML files. Also, when you create a new Customization Specification file on the Virtual Center Client, the result is the XML file.
I tried to create a new Customization Specification file importing an old Windows XP sysprep.inf file... And it seems to work with RCU, but only for XP gests obviously.
I noticed that in the XML files, some of the specs as guest admin password or activation number ared stored in an encrypted format, whereas in the .inf files, all is clear.
Does anyone know that problem ? Is there a solution ?
I thank you in advance for your help !
