Is it possible to enable guest customization on vCloud director, so as to autogenerate password on VM creation. I can do the same, on editing the configuration of an existing VM and then powering it off and starting it again forcing customization, but was wondering if this could be done at the VM creation phase.
Thanks for your response. I did try via API - by setting the needsCustomization param to true and passing the GuestCustomizationSection, but it still didn't enable guest customization. Hence, was wondering if it isn't supported on VM creation or I am missing something
The needsCustomization parameter becomes True when customization is enabled and before the first run of vm.
You need to configure GuestCustomizationSection for vm.
What version of vCloud are you using?
