I am getting this error message when creating the VM View Desktop Pool. Anybody knows what causing this error?
Error: "View Composer agent initialization state error (-65535): View Composer agent is not installed in the master VM (waited 0 seconds)"
VM Composer Agent is installed and the OS is Windows 7 64-bit.
What agent did you install? 32 or 64? I don't care which one you installed, but whichever one you did, try the other. Make sure you are using the latest build.
Try uninstalling and reinstalled the Agent, then take a new snap and see if you can provision it.
I am currently Evaluating VMware View and Vcenter.
I have installed Vcenter and Connection Server on seperate Windows 2008 sp2 VM's
I have configured them as per the Admin Guide and i am able to successfully automate a Desktop Pool using full virtual machines.
I am now trying to setup Linked-Clone Desktop Pools.
I have created a new Windows 7 64-bit VM.
I have a problem in that when i try to install VMware View Agent, i do not have the option for View Composer Agent and i think this is my problem. (see attached VMware_agent.jpg)
I carry on regardless, and install, once completed, and gone through a reboot, i power off the Windows 7 VM and take a snapshot.
I then go through View administrator and create my application pool as per the admin guide.
My provisioned VM gets created and started automatically, however i receive an error in the status (see VMware_Admin_status.jpg)
that says "View Composer agent initialization state error (-65535): View composer agent is not installed in the master VM (waited 0 seconds).
I am using VMware-viewagent-x86_64-4.5.0-293049.exe.
Any help would be appreciated
Something to do with your Windows7 Template. Follow the guidelines in "Creating and Preparing Virtual Machines" in the admin user guide found in... http://www.vmware.com/pdf/view45_admin_guide.pdf.
My initial install did not show any of the features but after following the admin guide recommendation, then all feature showed up.
I managed to have got the option now, i have basically created a new Windows 7 VM, installed VMware Tools and then ran the VMware View Agent and now i get the Composer Option
Thanks for your help.
