Windows 10 2004 customization failes

This post was originally published on this site


I have updated a Windows 10 template to 2004. When I try to deploy it VMware guest customization get stuck when I start the VM.


Message (something like): “VMware Guest OS Customization Task” is not started. Do you wish to start it now Y/N”

When I press Y, nothing happens it is stuck for ever.

When I press N, it continues and it proceeds with the customization.


[2020-09-01T12:21:15: WindowsOsAbstractionLayer:   INFO] Executing command: ‘C:WINDOWSsystem32schtasks.exe /query /tn “VMware Guest OS Customization Task”‘
[2020-09-01T12:21:15: WindowsOsAbstractionLayer:   WARN] Command execution failed with exit code: 1, output: ‘ERROR: The network address is invalid.


Any idea how to fix this?
