create win2k8_r2 vm with VMMSSP 2.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to create a vm with VMMSSP 2.0, VM's OS is win2k8_r2 Ent.

    The issue is that the VM cannot be created and hangs on step 1.7 on SCVMM job; "Customize virtual machine".

    I guess that the problem is with activation or something like that, even though I typed the correct License key on the template

    I tried to create VM with win2k_3 from VMMSSP 2.0, and it was OK

    does someone knows or been through this issue?

  • Solved,

    The problem was that the OS profile of the template should have KMS client license key:
