I've seen conflicting suggestions on VMware's documentation as well as around the Internet on a best practice for preparing linked clones for VMware View (5) deployments. Should I join the parent VM to the domain prior to shutting down for a snapshot, or should I do that with Sysprep/Quickprep during Compose?
Looks like I should have read through the documentation more thoroughly. While I know it's possible to join during deployment, VMware's desktop preparation guidelines state that the machine should be joined prior to deployment. I assume that this is needed for QuickPrep.
