    vCloud Director 9.7 - how to perform "power on and force guest os customization" through rest API?

      Hello,

       

      I am trying to deploying a VM using vRealize Orchestrator using VCD Plugin for vRO functions and workflows but I can't do the Guest Customization works.

       

      I'm doing this:

       

      •    The VM is created and deployed using a VCD Windows 2016 template
      •     The VM was deployed the VM without Guest Customization Enabled
      •     I powered on the VM.
      •     I installed some tools on the VM already powered on (using VMware tools and Customization Script plugin)
      •     I powered off VM.
      •     I enabled Guest Customization with change SID and request for change password first time login.
      •     I forced Guest Customization.
      •     I powered on the VM.
      •     The Guest Customization never comes. Why?

       

       

      But If I powered off and power On VM from the VCD GUI, it worked!!!

       

      What did I do wrong ? What are I missing? What the VCD GUI does different to VCD Plugin for vRO??

       

      I tried to follow this procedure vCloud Director 5.5 - how to perform "power on and force guest os customization" through rest API ? , but it looks only worked for VCD 5.5, for VDC 9.7 is not working.
