View Composer can store linked-clone desktop information in a SQL Server database. You create a View Composer database by adding it to SQL Server and configuring an ODBC data source for it.


You can add a new View Composer database to an existing Microsoft SQL Server instance to store linked-clone data for View Composer.


By using this recommended method, the View Composer database administrator can set permissions for View Composer administrators to be granted through Microsoft SQL Server database roles.


After you add a View Composer database to SQL Server, you must configure an ODBC connection to the new database to make this data source visible to the View Composer service.
