Is there a way to change the Guest Operation System via CLI without damaging the VM?
I am getting this error:
The configured guest OS (Other (64-bit)) for this virtual machine does not match the guest that is currently running (Red Hat Linux 6 (64-bit). You should specify the correct guest OS to allow for guest-specific optimizations ..
I selected other since I didn't know the OS format of the ISO image that I loaded and now I am getting the error after the VM is deployed with that ISO image and has some configuraiton.
When I try to go to edit settings under VM Options, General Options and Guest OS, it is greyed out and I can't select the other OS. Do you know if there is a way to change this (through CLI perhaps) without having to re-image and recreate the VM again?
