Can Ubuntu 20.04.01 be deployed using vRA7.6?

I am checking the possibility of deploying ubuntu 20.04.01 using vRA 7.6 with cloud-init customization and I am facing with some IP configuration issues. Is it possible to deploy this latest ubuntu version from vRA7.6 and with vCenter & ESXi host 6.7? Since I could see articles only about deploying from vRA8.0.

Ok. But the following link helped to achieve the customization.

Debian 9 - bad NIC interpretation (ens160) · Issue #172 · vmware/open-vm-tools · GitHub

the fact that is not officially in the support matrix doesn't mean that it won't work

try it out first, most likely it will work...

vRA team is not updating these very often

Great!

As also gradinka said, not being supported doesnt mean that you won't have it working, but remember that if you are going into a production stage, if any issue the first response you will have from support is that is. not supported (and ofc they will do a best efford)

Glad to hear you have it working now!

cheers
