    New-OSCustomizationSpec problem with PowerCLI 4.1.1 (332441)

    broedi Novice

      Hi,

      Im using PowerCLI to automate the deployment of new VMs by using VMware Templates and an OSCustomizationSpec.
      During the process, I create a new OSCustomizationSpec from a Template with the Command:
      New-OSCustomizationSpec -Spec Spec_Tempate -Name MyNew_Spec

      The Command works fine with PowerCLI 4.1 (264274), but after Upgrading to PowerCLI 4.1.1 (332441) the OS-Setup of Windows 2008 R2 failed 
      Error: "Install Windows"
      Windows could not parse or process unattend answer file [C:\Windows\Panther\unattend.xml] for pass [oobeSystem].
      The settings specified in the answer file cannot be applied.
      The error was detected while processing settings for component [Microsoft-Windows-Shell-Setup]

       

      The Error is reproduceable.

       

      All ESXi and vCenter Server using Version 4.1

       

      Is there another way to create a new OSCustomizationSpec?

      Has anyone used that Command with success?

       

      Thanks for any feedback

      Willibald
