vCAC 6.0 Build Profiles not working

Hello, and I apologize for my ignorance on all things vCAC but I am brand new to it. 

I have vCAC 6.0 up and running and am able to deploy systems using it.  I have a baseline windows 7 x64 image that i have converted to a template for use in deploying VM's from.  This image has no policies or other software loaded on it, just a baseline image.  I have configured a build profile and a default naming convention of DEV-VCAC-#### for all of the clone systems to follow when they are made.  Currently when i deploy a system, however, none of the build profile information is being implemented.  The hostname is not changed to match what vcac assigns it in vcenter (and the name in vcenter is correct) nor is it joining the domain like it needs to.  I have checked all the network connectivity and it all seems to be correct.  I have also checked the logs on the windows virtual machine that gets created to see if it may have just failed the domain join,. and the logs show nothing.  I have included a few screen shots, and know i am using the FQDN but blocked it out for purposes of posting. 

Any help you could provide, or even give me a direction to start prodding would be much appreciated.

Custom properties for clone workflow do not work. It is mentioned in the document.

In order to utilize sysprep you can create template image and provide customization name in the clone workflow.

So all customization happens out vCloud Automation Center.

I have written post on it here -> http://vzare.com/2014/02/06/vcloud-automation-center-6-0-creating-build-profiles-custom-properties .

You also use vCenter Orchestrator workflow and integrate with vCO. I have explained it here -> http://vzare.com/2014/02/23/integration-vcenter-orchestrator-with-vcloud-automation-centeradvance-se...

Hope it helps

With Great Regards,
