A View administrator assigns prescribed vCenter Server permissions to a vCenter Server role and associates the role with a domain user account named viewadmin. This account is used by View Connection Server for vCenter Server operations. The administrator creates and provisions two dedicated-assignment automatic pools that use templates, and everything works as expected. View Composer is enabled and a linked clone pool is configured. The linked clone provisioning operation aborts with errors in the event log. The errors indicate that there are insufficient permissions. What is the likely cause of the problem?
The user account used by View Composer lacks sufficient vCenter Server permissions.
What is a prerequisite for configuring an events database?
A prefix for the tables in the events database has been defined
Why must an unmanaged desktop be registered with View Connection Server before it can be added to a pool?
The View Connection Server must know the FQDN or IP address of the desktop before it can add it as a source.
A new ESXi host is set up with two virtual machines. A memory limit is applied so that users will have predictable performance as virtual machines are added to the host. What is the effect of applying a memory limit to these virtual machines?
No physical memory will be granted above the limit, but VSWP can be used.

A View administrator has deleted a linked clone pool, and communication between the Connection Server and the vCenter Server is lost. The administrator notices that the virtual machine associated with the replica still remains in the inventory view of vCenter Server and cannot be deleted. Which step must be taken to resolve this problem?
Run the sviconfig command with the unprotectentity option on the vCenter Server to remove the protection from the linked clone object.

What is the likely cause of the problem?
The vCenter Server role lacks privileges for View Composer.
An organization has two large office locations connected by a WAN connection that is already heavily saturated with traffic.
