Cloning a virtual machine using customization fails at 40% with the error: fault.CustomizationPending.summary (1006809)
The error fault.CustomizationPending.summary indicates that there is a customization pending on the source virtual machine which must be allowed to complete before being cloned to another virtual machine.
