vm_guest module - provisioning Windows 2019

Posted on

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck provisioning Windows 2019 via the vm_guest module on VSphere 6.5?

I've got a 2016 playbook that's working solidly and I've applied a similar methodology to the 2019 image. Unfortunately it appears to go into a loop during the sysprep stage.

From C:\Windows\Panther\setupact.log

SYSPRP SPPNP: Status worker: Waiting for device installation to start...
SYSPRP SPPNP: Status: Working
SYSPRP SPPNP: Total = 0, Complete = 0, Progress = 0% (0%)

Just wondering if anyone has had any luck with Win 2019 provisioning and are you able to share any information?
