You must manually customize Solaris vApp templates.

Ensure VMware Tools are installed.

1

Click Catalogs.

2

Select a vApp Template, right-click, and select Add to My Cloud.

3

In the guest OS, shut down the virtual machine.

4

Ensure that the Enable guest customization check box is selected and power off the virtual machine.

5

Start the vApp and power on the virtual machine.

The Customization CD is mounted automatically after the virtual machine powers on.

6

Log in to the Solaris guest operating system.

7

In the terminal, run these case-sensitive commands:

/etc/init.d/volmgt stop
/etc/init.d/volmgt start
sh /cdrom/cdrom/customize-guest.sh install
eject cdrom
8

Run shutdown -y -g0 -i5 to shut down the virtual machine from inside the guest operating system.

9

Stop the vApp.

10

Select the vApp template, right-click, and select Copy to Catalog.

11

(Optional) Delete the original vApp template.

A script starts that copies files to the guest and prepares the virtual machine template for customization.

Note

If you add new Solaris vApp Templates, you need to complete only steps 4-7 once. You do not need to repeat these steps for additional virtual machines in the Catalog that result from copying these virtual machines.
