Part of customization spec greyed out

Finally upgraded to vCenter 6.7. However in working with the customization spec part of the Edit network "Use an application configured on the vCenter Server to generate an IP address" piece is greyed out. See capture. can anyone tell me why?

I am guessing it is because you haven’t done this: Create a vCenter Server Application to Generate Computer Names and IP Addresses

Hi,

I had to do the following when it came down to allow customization when creating vm's. Hope this help.

1. Create a role.

2. Give the following permission.

     a. VirtualMachine.Provisioning.Modify customization specification

     b. VirtualMachine.Provisioning.Read customization specification

3. Apply the new role at your vCenter to the required group but don't propagate down.

That fix my problem.

Good Luck
