How to avoid “Customization of the guest operating system is not supported in this configuration”

23 viewsTutorials

Sometimes if you try to deploy a virtual machine from a template, you get an error message:

As a rule, this is due to the fact that VMware Tools are not installed in the machine. Simply convert the template into a VM, then turn it on and install it, and then convert the machine to the Template again.

This situation also happens when vCenter does not support the guest OS of the virtual machine for customization, or when the deployment occurs on an NFS-storage for which the option “no root squash” is not enabled
