Description (partial)

Symptom:
In vCD environment, CSR VM uses guest properties for bootstrap configuration. THe guest properties can only be retrieved by using vmtoolsd command in Binos.

To make it work, the guest customization must NOT be enabled since CSR VM uses guest properties for customization.
To do so on vCD UI:
1) Before you power on the VM, bring up the virtual Machine properties window for the CSR VM
2) Click the Guest OS Customization tab, un-check the ?Enable guest customization?.
3) Then power on the CSR VM.

Conditions:
Deploy CSR VM vAPP on vCD.
