The virtual desktop template must be in a stopped state

Occasional Visitor



My setup:

  • Active Directory with DNS and DHCP
  • RDS Server with Connection Broker, Virtualization Host and Web Access installed
    • Virtual machine-based desktop deployment

Steps how I create a virtual desktop:

  1.  Install Windows 10 Enterprise
  2.  Enable local administrator account and delete the old user account created
  3.  Change DNS Server to the Active Directory I have set up
  4.  Configuring (like installing a browser)
  5.  Running Sysprep with Generalized turned on and shutdown options set to "Shutdown"


I already made sure, that the Virtualization Host can ping the active directory and vice versa. I have checked that the virtual desktop is shut down too.

I would really appreciate if anyone can help me, I'm trying to figure out what the problem is for days
