Hi community !
Here's my issue , i didn't find a working solution on vmware and windows threads..
Template creation :
I made a base Windows 2012 R2 Standard VM to create a template. This VM has been added in our domain and then, it's auto activated with KMS.
Next to that, I removed the IP configuration and shutdown the VM then create the template.
(By the way, i use vCenter 6.0 and ESXis are 5.5 U3)
VM from template deployment :
I deployed a VM from the previous template by using a Customization Specification, this one simply do the following things :
- use the VM's name as computer's name
- ask NIC1's IP address
- auto-join to the domain with admin username/password
- Generate a new SID
My problem is :Windows is not activated
even if i tried to quit and join the domain again, i also tried to manually activate and reset activation with slmgr but it failed with the 0x8007232B error.
Finally, I manually launched a Sysprep OOBE Generalized , do the previous steps again but it still fails.
Do some of you have any idea for my case ?
