I am trying to set up desktop pool and after configured it says:
error during Provisioning initial publish failed: Fault type is Unknown_fault_fatal - After waiting for 600 seconds internal template vm: vm-175 still has not finished customization. Giving up!
How can I solve the problem?
> During initial publish, cp-template VM is first created using your master image. If cp-template or subsequent VMs fails to complete customization in 600seconds, it times out and this error pops up.
> Possible causes for customization failures are:
* APIPA address.
* Domain join failure.
* Windows volume license activation.
> Make sure that the parent VM and Instant Clone VMs have a DNS server correctly configured and are able to get an IP address.
> On the master image try below:
Add the key
GPUpdateEnabledOnIT with type
DWORD and value 0 to
Take a new snapshot and push it.
> If it still fails:
You need to first prevent cp-template from getting destroyed after the customization failure. Enable debug mode by following the below edoc
Enable the provisioning back on the affected Instant clone desktop pool & login to the VM and check the customization log which is located in C:\Windows\Temp\vmware-viewcomposer-ga-new.log.
Hello Shreyskar! I am encountering the same issue as orgilplus. I have added the key
DWORD and value 0 to
HKLM\Software\VMware Inc.\ViewComposer\ga (I did have to create the viewcomposer and ga key manually because they were not there by default)and added the cloneprep.debug.mode parameter with the value ‘ON’ The template is no longer deleting immediately, but I am not seeing the view composer log in the c:\windows\temp directory. The OS that I am working with is 1909 Enterprise. Do you by chance know where else that log might be stored?
I had exactly the same problem, when I logged into the template VM I was unable to acquire an IP address. In the end I deleted the VMXNet3 adaptor and added a new one, that fixed it. The only thing I can think of is that there was a clash of MAC addresses maybe?
