Not sure were the issue is here.
I can interactively create a VM in vCenter with exactly the same settings and it creates the VM like instantly.
I just tried to do this with New-VM and it stalled at 39% and its been sitting there for like 10 mins.
Here is the command I'm running (creating this VM with the same settings in vCenter works fine).
$VMName = 'myVM' $ResPool = Get-ResourcePool 'myResPool' $Datastore = Get-Datastore 'mystore' $Temp = Get-Template 'myTemp' $Spec = Get-OSCustomizationSpec 'mySpec' $Location = 'MyFolder' New-VM -Name $VMName -Template $Temp -ResourcePool $ResPool -OSCustomizationSpec $Spec -Location $Location -Folder -Verbose
Edit: OK so its not stalled, but its just going super slow. Its still at 51%. When I look at the task in vCenter it says Queued For: 9 ms if that means anything.
