The section titled Configure View Composer Settings for vCenter Server describe how to add a user for View Composer. This can be found starting near the bottom of page 14 in this guide:
Hope that helps!
Did you find the solution? I have the same problem. When I create ordinary vm from template (not linked clone), I dont have this issue.
I hadn't added the domain, as shown in the documentation above. It was one of a few servers I had built in a few days and zoned on it.
I also have this problem when using link-clone...
you are missing to fill the information of the domain when configuring the view composer.
Go to servers and add there the domain you want to add with the admin and the password, and it will appear when deploying a new pool:)

In the Vmware View Administrator Console, complete the following:
- Under View Configuration dropdown, select Servers
- Select your Vcenter server and click edit
- Select Edit under "View Composer Server Settings"
- Under Domains select "Verify Server Information"
- Add your domain
Hope this helps
Thanks. Though this is an old post but I would like to point out this solution is actually still works on View 6.0.
My situation is when I am usin VCSA and a standalone View Connection Server. Guess that's why I have to manually add the domain to View Composer Server Settings.
