Cause: There were changes made to guest cust spec on 7.0u3a

Workaround:

For a blueprint that does not leverage domain join, Navigate to Cloud assembly > Network Profile> open (the-network-profile-used-in-bp) > networks > edit(vCenter_network_mapped)
leave the domain filed here as blank and then re-run the deployment.

re-run the deployment, it now works:
