Sysprep file locations for Virtual Center Server guest customisation
We were doing the guest customisation section of the VMware ICM course today and I typed up on the screen the location of the sysprep files folder on Windows VCenter, this is necessary because we use the Linux VCenter App in the class.
Then I thought, hang on a second why not stick them in a blog, so here you go
If vCenter Server is installed on Windows Server 2008 and above, <directory_path> is %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Sysprep which generally translates to C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Sysprep by default.
Note: C:\ProgramData may be a hidden folder.
If vCenter Server is installed on any other Windows operating system, <directory_path> is %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Sysprep\ which generally translates to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\VMware\VMware VirtualCenter\Sysprep\ by default.
Note: Remember Only Windows 2003 64 bit for VC 5.0 and additionally WinXP Pro 64 bit for VC 4.x
If vCenter Server is installed on Linux Virtual App, <directory_path> is /etc/vmware-vpx/sysprep
