do you have already tried to push a instant clone image with the latest Agent 7.8?
Is it working for you?
I'm unable to push fresh images, tested with different images.
Error after creating the cp-template:
Fault type is UNKNOWN_FAULT_FATAL - After waiting for 300 seconds internal template VM: vm-18903 is still not powered off. Giving up!
Yes, I've been able to push Instant-Clones pools thus far without issue. It's just implemented in a lab at the moment so have not thoroughly tested yet. Still would love to understand the use case for the new feature.
strange, for me it isn´t working...
After downgrading to the 7.7 Agent the Instant Clone push works fine again.
I´m also interested why we have to define an account for the reuse of computer accounts now.

I run instant clones in production and the way it currently works in mine(7.4), first a cp-template vm is created. This one needs to be added to the domain, which for me its auto creating a random ad account that starts with it. I haven't tried 7.8 yet, but isn't the feature mentioned just for this, it states
". If you want to use pre-created computer accounts instead of auto-created computer accounts"
I believe you chose not to use that. This is separate that choosing or not showing to reuse the same computer objects for the clones, or needing a service account.
For the purpose of this I can see it being used for auditing purposes, and even clean up usuage. For an example, I have a few desktop pools that use the same OU. I cannot tell which template account is for which without digging through the horizon ldap database
Hi sjesse, I think you nailed it. Thanks!
