Vmware esxi 5, vcenter 5, vm view 5 with composer.

As mentioned, I have a pool configured, and when I provision the pool (1 minimum), I can see it create a replica in vcenter and then as soon as it's done, it deletes the replica and the provisioned desktop shows in View Admin with "Provisioning error (missing)".

I've seen other posts saying it's permissions related, but nothing more specific than that.  Is it vcenter, AD, View, local user?

Figured this one out.  The replica was being deleted due to incorrect permissions on the AD OU container.  More specifically, I had the perms correct on the container I wanted the linked clones joined to, but the I had delete/recreated the Pool in View Manager and left the OU set to the default \Computers OU, so the permissions were not correct on the OU it was actually using.

The suggestion was not the solution, nor did it point me in the right direction - as I had originally suggested that it was permission-related.  Thanks.
