Whether CentOS 6.4 is supported in vCAC 6.0?

Jump to solution

Dear VMware members:

    I have checked the vcloud-automation-center-60-support-matrix.pdf and found the CentOS 6.4

    is in the Guest Operating Systems support list as below:

    Supported Guest OS            Guest Agent Customization Support

        CentOS 6.4                            Yes

    But when I deployed VM guest running CentOS 6.4, it always got the following error messages

    after viewing request status details:

    Request Failed: Machine lab-vcac-009: CustomizeVM : [CustomizeVM_Task] - Customization of the guest operating system 'centos64Guest' 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.

    The VMware Tools and Linux guest agent are bothed installed and configured successfully, and

    more strange thing is that under the same environment for the RHEL 6.4 VM deployment is

    successful.

    I don't know how to figure out the solution, and what's wrong with it?

    Your reply is highly appreciated.


Best Regards

Danny

This is happening because vCenter does not support CentOS customization through customization script even though vCAC supports it.

There are some workarounds to get this working but i would suggest you open a ticket with VMware and get an official answer if its a production environment.

Deploy your CentOS template in vCenter as OS Type - Linux > Red Hat and you will get the customisation capabilities.
