in our view's environment we have 2 Esxi Host (in a single cluster , vsphere 6.5 ) using 2 vmfs Datastore
we have 2 linked clone desktop pool using 2 different template (snapshoot of template)
we deployed many vm from both desktop pool , and if i check (from view admin console) to wich template/snapshoot every desktop point, i found out that we are using 4 different snapshoot
i report and example :
1 desktop point to : /DC-VDI/vm/VDI/Template/TEMPLATE_NAT/base/base/Personalizzazione_VDI
1 desktop point to : /DC-VDI/vm/VDI/Template/TEMPLATE_SIR/base/SAP_Office_Sophos/Sophos-VDI/File hosts/VDI_Workstation_Customization/OLAP+AdobeUpd/Java
1 desktop point to : /DC-VDI/vm/VDI/Template/TEMPLATE_SIR/base/SAP_Office_Sophos/Sophos-VDI/File hosts/VDI_Workstation_Customization/OLAP+AdobeUpd
1 desktop point to : /DC-VDI/vm/VDI/Template/TEMPLATENATFOOD/base_vlan_e_agente/EPRs + APP/windowsearc_desktopexp_lenguageita/Office_2013/Fides_Profile
I was expecting to find 4 replica on my cluster , but ihave 7 replica's vm.
today i added 3 desktop to an existing (single) desktop pool, a few second after adding this i see 2 clone taks on vcenter
how it is possibile? how did View manage replica's vm in linked clone desktop pool?
There should be only 4 replica VM´s if you didn´t selected a dedicated datastore for replicas. Probably a recompose task in all pools would solve the issue deleting the stale replicas.
