Customization windows 7 doesn't join domain

Hello Guys,

I need your help about a customization specs doesn't work properly on my vcenter 5.0.

I try to deploy VMs from a windows 7 template (joined to domain and view agent installed).

Below the configuration of my customization specification config :

All specs are applied, just only the domain join was not working.

And I find my domain Netbios name is added as a workgroup name.

Can you please help me about this problem

Thank you in advance.

Hi

Just to confirm the networking side of things:

  • When the new virtual machine was deployed, ... was the vNIC connected from the vSphere side (Yes/No)?
  • When you logged into the virtual machine, ... did it receive its IP details (IP, Subnet, Gateway, DNS etc) correctly (Yes/No)?

Just to confirm the domain account works correctly:

  • Can you manually add the computer to the domain with the username and password that you supplied via the customization specification (Yes/No)?

If yes to all of the above and you haven't done so already, check out the output from the sysprep process. The location for Windows 7 can be found here VMware KB: Locations of sysprep log files

There should be a clue in the log files as to why it doesn't join to the domain.

Hope this helps,

Dean
