vietool is a commandline tool from symantec to whitelist your virtual image = Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1 Virtual Image Exception tool
I’ve put it in my powershell script which I run on every new vdi template. But first time I ran it , I got an error
“ERROR: Failed to run service: Service start error (Error code: 3)”
I only found 1 page with google that looked a lot like my error : http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH165831&actp=search&viewlocale=en_US&searchid=1340196937538
But, I got error 3.
After putting the vietool.exe locally on the C drive of the VM , it worked
It is at this point not explicitly mentioned in the VIEtool manual (there is something about removing it afterwords from your base image so you could guess it)
I just put this online, maybe it could be of use for someone….
