Running all the latest updates (incluing VM Tools)
When trying to deploy from NetApp VCS Rapid Cloning Utility
In a SAN environment,I get the following error.

Customize virtual machine guest OS
Customization of the guest operating system 'winXPProGuest' is not supported in this configuration.
Microsoft Vista (TM) and Linux guests with Logical Volume Manager are supported only for recent ESX host and VMware Tools versions. Refer to vCenter documentation for supported configurations.

vCenter Host and the Host being cloned is Windows Server Standard 2008 R2 SP1 64 bit
But no problem in the NAS (NFS) environment



This is a known issue for SAN environments.  It has been fixed in the upcoming VSC 4.0 release.
