Attempting to add an automated desktop pool using linked clone technology fails after reinitializing the View Composer database and generates an "Invalid value for parameter vcConfigId passed to SVI function" error message (1007723)


Do not reinitialize the View Composer database when reinstalling or upgrading View Composer unless you  want to remove all View Composer information about VirtualCenter, Active Directory domain credentials, linked clones, and replica virtual machines. If you do reinitialize the View Composer database, remove the VirtualCenter entry from View Manager and re-add the entry before attempting to create any linked clone automated desktop pools.
In View 3.1, an appropriate error message is displayed to indicate that the View Composer database has been re-initialized or is corrupt.
