Thank you for the great work on this Fling and the presentation at VMware Explore. As of 9/23/2022, I have attempted several different deployments of the OVA, all resulting what seems to be an incomplete bootstrap of the VM.

The deployment completes, the IP is assigned to the VM, however, the entered root password does not work. Calls via API timeout.

I attempted to hack the password and examine the logs in /home/vmdsc/logs, but no evidence of failure (just mentions of the various jsons running).

We have tried with DHCP and static deployments. Custom and SelfSigned cert environments.

Are older versions of the OVA available? any assistance would be appreciated

Hi Ricky, to keep you updated, I've been able to reproduce this issue on my end and we're working on the fix. We should have that out soon! Will ping you again once that's out. Thank you!

Hi, i need to have an specific version of vROPS and vRO? or which is the minimun version. Other question. If i have the version 8.6.4 of vrops, this (VMDSC) is the same function that the new functionality "scheduled jobs" where in this option i can scheduled one job to downsize/undersize the vm, shutdown, delete, reboot. So if i have this version of vrops is necessary implement this?
Thanks.

Does the Virtual Machine Desired State Configuration appliance have to deployed for each vCenter?

Would love to see this functionality directly integrated within vSphere. Seems like this has been a long time ask from many (so much so that we have essentially this same functionally in our environment but as a homebrew container application)

Shoutout to the team at VMware Explore for bringing this fling to light though!

+1 also for advanced settings like devices.hotplug, cpu/memory hot add enable/disable, Guest OS.
