        It would be great if VMware Studio 2.7 would support provisioning linux VMs from an Ubuntu 12.04 LTS ISO.

        This is already on the wishlist (--> FR #030) but I'm happy for every single person who wants to enforce that ;o)

          Hi All,

           

          What all the sysadmin needs, a central tool which can drag the existing VM template and start push the application package and convert them to customizsed template.

          Is it possible in 2.7 version future release request.

           

          Hi AITS,

           

          thx for your vote. Unfortunately I don't fully understand what you want here - Could you describe it in more detail please?

           

          Thanks

            That is exactly my point. I wanted to re-enforce this item in the wish list. I hope it does not slip through the cracks.

              I'm looking forward to support for Ubuntu 12.04 support.

               

              Any hints about when to expect the new version?

                The plan is to have 2.7 released within the first quarter next year.

                Unless something goes wrong, it will support the latest releases of the Linux distributions.

                  Would it be possible to add full Timezone support within VAOS/VAMI for VMware Studio 2.7 ?

                   

                  Currently. the Time Zone is ONLY configured on first boot after deployment.  Whilst it is possible to update the vCenter property to a new Time Zone value, this is ignored by the subsequent boot script.

                   

                  This is confusing and would be pretty easy to address.

                    Feature request

                    Set custom locale via VM Studio UI

                     

                    Issue

                    Studio 2.6 will build Ubuntu 10.04 appliances with locale set to en_US. When installing a database package such as postgresql-8.4, the databases will default to same locale resulting in LATIN1 encoding. The desired encoding is UTF-8.

                     

                    Workarounds

                    Post-appliance build:

                    The workaround after the appliance first boots (that we know of) is to change the locale (i.e to en_US.utf8) on the OS level, then purge and reinstall package  postgresql-8.4. This way the databases will default to locale en_US.utf8 resulting in UTF-8 encoding.

                     

                    Workaround for building new appliances:

                    Edit the Ubuntu 10.04 profile and templates so that when the appliance is built, it will be with en_US.utf8 locale.

                     

                    /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/10/ubuntu.xsl
                    -     d-i debian-installer/locale string en_US
                    +     d-i debian-installer/locale string en_US.UTF-8

                     

                    /opt/vmware/etc/build/templates/ubuntu/10/post.xsl

                    + locale-gen en_US.UTF-8

                    + update-locale LANG=en_US.UTF-8

                    - export LANG=en_US

                    + export LANG=en_US.UTF-8

                     

                    /opt/vmware/var/lib/build/profiles/<profile_name>.xml

                    - Change all mention of "en_US" to en_US.UTF-8
