Before you deploy instant clones, you must create a user account that has the permission to perform certain operations in Active Directory.
About this task
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 Virtual Desktops in Horizon 7 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:
Read All Properties
Write All Properties
Create Computer Objects
Delete Computer Objects
Make sure that the permissions apply to the correct container and to all child objects of the container.
