Change GuestOS Type of vApp VM programmatically using PowerCLI
I have a use case where I have a large amount of imported VMs into vCD - everything looks good except the GuestOSType is incorrect - I have a powercli script that will list the OS Type but I can't seem to find a way to set it to the desired new value
To display what it is, I can simply add $OS = $vm.GuestOSFullName
If i try $vm.GuestOSFullName = "Value"
I get error saying it is a read only value - "'GuestOSFullName' is a ReadOnly property."
I think i need to use extensiondata but cant seem to find a similar example of setting spec -
Has anyone achieved this before or know where i would get an example of setting guestos from powercli on Cloud Director VMs
I know from vCenter i can use powercli to change it - but am slow to do it from the vCenter side as it doesn't seem to change the vCD OS - On vCenter side it is just the commandlet Set-VM -VM $vm -GuestId $guestId -confirm:$false
