If you choose not to use the vCloud Automation Center PEBuilder, you must manually configure the doagentc.bat file.

1

Navigate to the VRMGuestAgent directory within your WinPE Image.

For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\PE Builder\Plugins\VRM Agent\VRMGuestAgent.

2

Make a copy of the file doagentsvc-template.bat and name it doagentc.bat.

3

Open doagentc.bat in a text editor.

4

Replace all instances of the string #Dcac Hostname# with the fully qualified domain name and port number for the vCloud Automation Center server host.

For example:

my_machine_name.mycompany.com:443
5

Replace all instances of the string #errorlevel# with the character 1.

6

Replace all instances of the string #Protocol# with the string /ssl.

7

Replace all instances of the string #Comment# the REM (REM must be followed by a trailing space).

8

Save and close the file.
