I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It's required to Optimize Linked Clones, based on selecting a Snapshot.

see here, this tells you what it is and how to install it...


I would recommend installing it on a standalone server.

the above reference is for horizon 6; the latest version is 7.3.1 (not sure if you are running version 6 or 7)

here is documentation for that version


also, it is required to be on a separate machine
if you try to install a connection server on the same machine, setup will not continue if it detects composer installed
