Windows Provision task takes forever

    The provision windows step can take a little while to complete.  The vm is started and restarted while configurations are made inside the vm. This task can get stuck if the vm console is accessed during the step.

    There is a workaround in case it gets stuck:

    1) cancel provision windows (click on the 'x' that will eventually show up when you hover over "running")

    2) reboot vm

    3) rebuild network

    4) reset administrator password

    It also helps to keep the windows templates up to date, and I believe there are fixes to help with this in later releases of OnApp.
