If the settings on a guest virtual machine are not in synch with vCloud Director or an attempt to perform guest customization has failed, you can power on and force the recustomization of the virtual machine.

You are at least a vApp user.

Note: If you select the Change SID check box, a SID change will occur on the guest virtual machine.


  1. Click My Cloud.
  2. In vApps, select a vApp, right-click, and select Open.
  3. On the Virtual Machines tab, select a virtual machine, right-click, and select Power On and Force Re-customization.


The virtual machine is now recustomized.
