Report Compiling a Gold master to use in VMWare VDI envirenment in Configuration Manager 2012 Posted November 20, 2014 Creating a master VM for VDI should always be done with the machine off the domain (i.e. WORKSTATION context). In our organization we use Microsoft RDS and have the broker create the pool of VM's, which during the task, joins each machine created to the domain. In my previous response to your question I left out one other detail. I created a startup script for the VM's in the pool to do a NET STOP CCMEXEC, pause for about 30 seconds, then NET START CCMEXEC. I found by doing this it will prevent the VM's from reusing the GUID from the master VM. All 60 or so VM's that I manage for RDS have unique GUID's.
