Deploy a Linked Pool show a error message "COM ErrorCode:-2147022651"

Hi All

     I try to create a linked pool to deploy XP SP3 but after configure pool and composer try to create VMs, it show a message in View Web Console "View Composer AD Fault: Failed to perform Active Directory operation. COM ErrorCode:-2147022651"

   I check AD , the workstation object indeed be created by composer...but VMs do not be created in ESXi Server.

Who had similar experience like me ?

thanks!!

What privileges does the View Composer account have?

This should not be related to the storage used.

hi

  Itest some thimes and find a interesting condition...Ihad disable DRS and HA function of Cluster.

but when I recheck my issue I find

1. my source VM at server01 ex:192.168.0.71

2. replicate linked VM at server02 ex:192.168.0.76

3. Tag VM at server02 ex:192.168.0.62

then immediately auto delete TagVM and replicate VM~~then I get the COMerror code..

base on my understanding , replicate and TagVM should be link SourceVM.My mean that they should be locate the same esxi server right ?

exclude DRS and HA, which setting will cause my issue? who has similar experience like me ??

thanks!!

That should not be related.

What do you mean with "TagVM"?

What vSphere version are you on and is all this on shared storage?

Could you try with using sysprep instead?

HI Linjo

   about tag VM, like screenshot(you could see they are placed different server location), I had disable DRS and HA function in my lab, but the issue still occur (extra information, my one node server show "Unconfigure Error which point disable HA fail")

Besides, I use vCenter 5.5U1a, and ESXi Version are 5.5 (Because I use vSAN as View testing Datastore)
