In order to prepare a Kali template for use in CONS3RT, a few tweaks are necessary:

  1. Set as an “Ubuntu (64-Bit)” VM
  2. Follow these instructions when installing vmware tools: https://www.kali.org/docs/virtualization/install-vmware-tools-kali-guest/
  3. In “/etc/lsb-release” change:
  • DISTRIB_ID=Kali to DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
  • DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=“Kali GNU/Linux 2.0” to DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION=“Ubuntu"
  1. Execute the following - ln -s /etc/dhcp /etc/dhcp3
  2. run apt-get install xinetd
  3. run `and a vnc server (tigervnc-server should work)
  4. uncomment PasswordAuthentication Yes in /etc/ssh/ssh_config
  5. Run template builder and continue template build as usual
