I work in a VMware 5.5 environment. I am trying to deploy Windows 10 workstations from a preconfigured template. The process seems to go properly. I start the process and select a Host, then Storage, then I click "Customize using existing customization specification", select the proper network, I get prompted for "NIC1" and I enter my IP in the proper subnet. I "Edit virtual hardware" and confirm my network label is correct, memory and drive size are correct, apply recommendations and it appears to go but I the IP address and network information never get assigned, nor does it ever rename itself or join our domain. Does anyone have any suggestions?
