Solaris guest customisation

I'd like to understand whether custom guest OS customisation script in vCloud 1.5 (with vSphere/ESXi 5) is compatible with Solaris 10 (update 10) guest image which has VMware Tools installed.

According to the guide guest customisation is supported manually:

http://pubs.vmware.com/vcloud-director-1-5/user/GUID-132B96E8-2E0A-41E1-B701-0E3C213403AE.html

Presuming this is the procedure for doing so:

http://pubs.vmware.com/vcloud-director-1-5/user/GUID-C4422F82-D717-42C6-989F-E608419EEF84.html

Upon executing customize-guest.sh install/start I do not see the changes from my VM's "Customization Script" section being applied at all (the script commands are also nowhere to be found under under /cdrom/cdrom ).

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug with vSpehere/vCloud?

Fixed.

And also make sure you're using pure sh script (I was using bash) since the script will get executed with /bin/sh  only, it will ignore #!/bin/bash
