Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The result of guest OS customization depends on the DHCP state on the management (mgmt) interface and the applied customization profile (i.e., IPv4 only, IPv4 and IPv6, or IPv6 with IPv4 prompt). By default, DHCP is enabled on the management interface. During configuration, you can customize only one IPv4 or one IPv6 address in a dual stack environment.

Impact

You can only partially customize the mgmt interface IP profiles for VMware VMs in a dual stack environment.

Conditions

Applying a customization profile to VMware VM in a dual stack environment.

Workaround

Configure the mgmt interface addresses using the config script.

Fix Information

VMware customization works only partially in a dual stack environment. To avoid misconfiguration, set the desired mgmt interface addresses using the config script.
