    View-created VMs being deleted after cloning

    unstableconcepts Novice

      Hello,

       

      I have created a fresh View environment that I'm having some difficulties with. I can successfully create a desktop pool but after View clones from the Parent VM it deletes the new VMs right after they finish the clone operation. So, what happens is the Parent VM is cloned, tagged, and then the new VM is deleted.

       

      Environment details:

      2 ESX 4.0 Update 2 hosts

      1 Physical vCenter 4.0 Update 2 server, also running View Composer

      1 Physical View 4.5 Manager Server

      vCenter and View Manager are both configured to use an external SQL DB

      No Event DB configured

       

      Any ideas? I probably just missed a config step somewhere.
