Creating a vSphere Stemcell Manually
In vSphere, customers must build their own stemcells to use PAS for Windows 2012R2 in their on-premise deployments.
Create a stemcell by following the directions in Creating a vSphere Windows Stemcell.
The process includes starting with an ISO of Windows Server 2012R2 and installing the latest Windows Updates on a new virtual machine. Then you install the BOSH dependencies. Finally, you use the
stembuild tool to package the VM’s disk as a
.tgz file that can be uploaded to the PAS for Windows 2012R2 tile in Ops Manager.
