View 5 Error 18 Unable to join to domain with win7 parent vm

Jump to solution

I have installed our required software, installed the agent, added the parent to the domain and when i go to create the pool i eventually get the error 18 saying that it was unable to attach the machine to the domain. If i look under active directory on our sbs 2003 server it shows that the machine is there but when i try to log into the console under vsphere i get the error that says "The security databse on the server does not have the compouter account for this workstation trust relationship." I see alot of fixes for this but those tend to deal with windows xp images.

I also went ahead and tried creating the registry entry for the "NeutralizeNT4Emulator" which didnt work as well as manually setting the default gateway and the dns server.

Should i turn off the firewall service on our parent vms? I tried that with no luck either but i thought i would ask.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

it may be due to the incompatible composer version, View Composer 2.6 is not compatible with the View Agent 5.0. Refer this KB http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2006879

Are you able to add these machines to domain manually by logging in via vsphere client?

If i log into the machines as the local user and change them to a workgroup (because they are already showing like they are on the domain), then reboot then add them to the domain then yes i can manually add them to the domain.

That was it! Thank you! The new composer upgrade was a pain in the ass but I got it to work eventually! Again Thank you!
