Actually I set ram, CPUs, etc without creating a custom spec in vcenter, it
works just fine without it. I was referring to memory reservation, not
But I’ll take a look at the docs you pointed to and see if THAT allows me

timezone, dns, etc):
Then you can use
--cspec NAME where NAME is the name of the
customization specification you created.
