We work with vSphere clone.
We have an existing template with no winRm config done.
In the order when we launch a packer build the process :
- Clone template
- Reconfigure machine
- Load floppy files
- Get an ip
- Wait winRm to become available
How we can config winRm layer before packer wait winRm to become avaible please?
Thx for your help.
Hi ! in order to enable WinRM, you should use a script like this one : configure winrm for packer · GitHub
I advise to use it first in your template (or if you build a template, launch it at the end of your installation, or through an autounattend.xml, the easiest way in my opinion)
You can use floppy_files option ( vSphere ISO - Builders | Packer | HashiCorp Developer ) to load the script and manually launch it in the VM for example
Here’s a great link about how to setup winRM (specially with VMWare too ) Communicators - Templates | Packer | HashiCorp Developer
