Exact problem we are getting the exact problem and wasted around two days with no luck =(
Windows 2012R2 support is coming in the 8.5 release and perhaps 8.3SP3 as well.
This behavior is only with 2012R2 for you? If you attempt to clone/customize the VM via vCenter does this work correctly for you and enable the NIC?
Yes only on win 2012R2. And as you said, through VCenter it works fine, it provision the VM and enable the NIC.
But I didn't try to with other version of windows, do you mean you tried that and it worked perfectly?
Could you please provide me the link that tells about this problem and the coming solution?
I really appreciated your reply.
Oh .. I think I got a lot of links:
Sorry, no I had not tested this myself. Glad to see you found helpful info though via the links you included.
