Before you deploy instant clones, you must create a user account that has the permission to perform certain operations in Active Directory.

Select this account when you add an instant-clone domain administrator before deploying instant-clone desktop pools. For more information, see "Add an Instant-Clone Domain Administrator" in the Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View document.


In Active Directory, create a user account in the same domain as the Connection Server or in a trusted domain.


Add the Create Computer Objects, Delete Computer Objects, and Write All Properties permissions to the account on the container for the instant-clone computer accounts.

The following list shows the required permissions for the user account, including permissions that are assigned by default:

List Contents

Read All Properties

Write All Properties

Read Permissions

Reset Password

Create Computer Objects

Delete Computer Objects

Make sure that the permissions apply to the correct container and to all child objects of the container.
