Hi Tan,

After installing OS from ISO, you need to install the VMware Tools, then if you decide to
create a Template you need to sysprep the VM first.  It's when you create the Sysprep answer
file that you can specify persistent drivers.

Hi Geoff,

I had created OS ISO instead of template and I didn't see any option in it to enable 'Persistent
Drivers'. Is there any ways for ISO type template to have such option or I have to recreate
a new template to do the configuration you stated just now??

Regards,
Tan

Hi Tan,

When you create a Windows Template it's very important that you enable the 'Persistent Drivers'
option in the Sysprep configuration as this ensures that the VMware Drivers are retained pos
Sysprep.

If this is not enabled, the symptom will be erratic mouse behaviour when using the console
proxy, where is moves from the top left hand corner, to the bottom right hand corner, regardless
of your mouse inputs.

Subject: Mouse cursor not working in console

Hi all,

I am having problem with the mouse cursor in console of Apache CloudStack.

I have no issue with Linux OS opened via console, the problem does exist in Windows OS.

The hypervisor I using is ESXi 5.5, while the CloudStack was installed in CentOS.



I guess the problem is because of the VMware tools problem, as the VMware tools for Linux
had already been installed in CentOS,

while there is no VMware tools installed for Windows OS.



Hope that somebody can help me for this issue. Thanks for any help



Regards

Tan
