I have already submitted this to CONNECT but I’m posting it anyway in case more people have the same issue and looking for answers. (Bug ID 600119)

Cannot set “UserPassword” value from a random generated string object. Hard coding a password works, tried all combinations and even up to 20 characters

As you could read in a earlier post SCUG.BE organised a demo to let people become familiar with Opalis. We saw some demos and also a quick peak of the upcoming Integration Packs. The demo was given by Alexandre Verkinderen.

I’m especially looking forward for the Virtual Server IP to automate the creation of new VM Servers!
