View Composer agent initialization state error (18): Failed to join the domain

Hi all,

my problem is that when I try to create a pool of desktop with Linked Clone mode, I get the error reported in the subject of the post. My base virtual desktop is a Windwos XP SP3 machine, the AD used for QuickPrep is a Windows 2003 R2 server. I've installed KB961501, KB968389, KB975467, KB971657, KB944043 Microsoft patches (I find these patches in the community). Then, not solving the problem, I've followed the VMware article "http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1024419" (however, it is indicated for Windows 7 and Windows 2008 AD systems)...but the error is always the same...

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Nicola

Any additional details in C:\WINDOWS\Temp\vmware-viewcomposer-ga-new.log on the VM that fails to join the domain?

Assuming you are using View 4.5 with Composer 2.5, make sure that the View agent on your base template snapshot for the linked clone is also of that version! I had the same problem with my template before upgrading it to 4.5...

Hope it helps!
