Pinned topic Windows VM template fails to be detected

‏2010-04-06T17:04:10Z |
Hello
I have a running CB 1.2 like environment using the 4 refresh CB 1.2 VMs, the system is running well using the sample SLES template, but when I try to create and deploy a Windows 2003 template, following the 1.7 cookbook steps for SLES, I can request the new project using the windows template and although the template gets created and I see its clone task on vCenter and I can login to the new system and ping all the management 10.160.0.* IPs, the over all task fails, (it actually repeats 3 times) with this error message:

Timeout: Unable to see virtual machine state : poweredOff

in TPM, Provision workflow status

Any clues what could this be? is the workflow for Linux VM provisioning different from Windows VM provisioning.

PS, I do not use the ITM agent and I fill out all the needed fields in the template section on TPM template definition

Thanks for your help

    You may want to check th version of cygwin

    For windows there are a few more steps required for the configuration of the template. Please have a look at http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/tivihelp/v10r1/topic/com.ibm.tsam.doc_7.2/rdp/t_prepare_os_image_vmware_win.html

    Hope this helps

    Thanks Rossella, I didn't have cygwin and cloudPostinstallWindows.zip files copied to the template. I followed the steps using latest cygwin version 1.7.4-1 and it gave me the same results. I'll try with an older version of cygwin, hopefully this could fix the issue.
