Error creating linked clones based upon image/snapshot of WinXP SP3 with View Agent 4.5:
View Composer agent initialization state error (18): Failed to join the domain (waited 880 seconds)
Step 1 – Return to the base image and install MS KB944043 for XP.
- That KB patch has four other dependencies. KB961501, KB968389, KB975467, KB971657, and then finally install KB944043 last.
Step 2 – take a new snapshot of the base image.
Step 3 – recompose the pool.
- NOTE: a recompose will delete and recreate all of the clones in the pool.
Tested and verified that the pool successfully provisioned the WinXP SP3 linked clones.
