This applies to vyos 1.2.0 as well as to vyos 1.1.8. What I try to do is to create a customizeable VMware template on a VMware vSphere 6.5 environment.
open-vm-tools are present in Version 10.0.5.52125 (build-3227872) on vyos 1.2.0. For VyOS 1.1.8 open-vm-tools are installed in version 126.96.36.199793 (build-1280544) accompanied by open-vm-tools-deploypkg 9.4.15-1 and by libmspack0 0.0.20040308.
Customizing the template during the provisioning process is not possible. VMware states, that customization of that guest OS is not supported in this configuration. Guest OS of Microsoft Vista ™ and Linux with LVM are only supported by newer versions of VMware tools, the vSphere web client says.
The guest OS is identified as "Debian GNU/Linux 8 (64-bit), which is fine.
Did anyone successfully create a customizeable VMware template for VyOS or does anyone know a trick to get this to work?
Many thanks in advance!
