vCloud Director 9.7 - how to perform "power on and force guest os customization" through rest API?

Hello,

I am trying to deploying a VM using vRealize Orchestrator using VCD Plugin for vRO functions and workflows but I can't do the Guest Customization works.

I'm doing this:

  •    The VM is created and deployed using a VCD Windows 2016 template
  •     The VM was deployed the VM without Guest Customization Enabled
  •     I powered on the VM.
  •     I installed some tools on the VM already powered on (using VMware tools and Customization Script plugin)
  •     I powered off VM.
  •     I enabled Guest Customization with change SID and request for change password first time login.
  •     I forced Guest Customization.
  •     I powered on the VM.
  •     The Guest Customization never comes. Why?

But If I powered off and power On VM from the VCD GUI, it worked!!!

What did I do wrong ? What are I missing? What the VCD GUI does different to VCD Plugin for vRO??

I tried to follow this procedure vCloud Director 5.5 - how to perform "power on and force guest os customization" through rest API ? , but it looks only worked for VCD 5.5, for VDC 9.7 is not working.

Regards
