Cannot Deploy Machine from a Template in vSphere 5.1

I had to rebuild vCenter 5.1 and re-attach it to an external database some time ago. Since then I had not tried to deploy a VM from a template and use the Customization script. The customization process would error out with this message:

‘the public key in specification does not match the vCenter public key.  You have to reenter the password in order to proceed’

Craig does a good step-by-step on how to fix this:

Re-entering the administrator password within the customization script will stop the error. You can do this via the web interface.
