For CentOS logical templates, guest customization does not successfully finish, which causes a failure in the agent bootstrap script and the overall deployment fails.


	 Agent did not respond while running task agent_bootstrap on the node
	 CentOS_x32_5.6. Please check agent logs.

The guest customization failed because of one of the several reasons.

Having more than five NICs on a node in a CentOS virtual machine might cause the problem.

The network used for the application deployment does not have connectivity to the Application Services appliance.

VMware Tools is not installed in the vCloud Director template.

The Application Services agent bootstrap service or JRE is not installed properly.

Reduce the number of NICs for an individual node on the CentOS virtual machines.

See Using Application Services.

Check the application deployment network and infrastructure settings.

Install VMware Tools in your vCloud Director template.

Verify that the agent bootstrap service or JRE is installed properly on the vCloud Director template, vCloud Automation Center blueprint, or Amazon EC2 AMI.
