Hello! Using vRealize 8.1 and a slightly modified VMware cloudbase config...https://docs.vmware.com/en/V...

I'm not able to get cloudbase to kick off at all.

In the cloudbase logs, I can see multiple errors, etc.

WARNING cloudbaseinit.metadata.services.osconfigdrive.windows [-] ISO extraction failed on <partition: \\?\globalroot\device\harddisk0\partition2=""> with WindowsCloudbaseInitException("Cannot open file: 'The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.'

I can see the ISO is attached but cloudbase doesn't appear to be able to use it.

Thank you for any input!

I found that the #cloud-config header was missing in the XML file. I was missing a pipe in my blueprint.

  cloudConfig: |
    #cloud-config
    write_files:
      content: Cloudbase-Init test
      path: c:\test.txt
