    Include Linux Command to run once after user deploys OVF Template?

    Chris0dEtRoiT Lurker

      Hi All,

       

      I'm hoping someone can give me insight on how to include a command into an Appliance so that when a user first deploys the ovf, the command/script is only executed once....

       

       

      I've built a Linux RHEL 5.x Profile and when the VM is built via VM Studio and deployed in a vCenter instance it works as I expected....

       

      The problem is that I need to add a few modifications after a "User" first deploys the OVF Template...For example, the UUID of the Linux image needs to be changed using a command similar to "uuidgen > /etc/xxxxxx/uuid" ...

       

      I've tried the Post Application script methods, etc in VM Studio...Also, read the Dev Guide,,,,I'm probably just not understanding something on how this should be included....

       

      I appreciate any feed back...
