[ovirt-users] OVirt 4.0.3 VDI?

I have a small DC running with OVirt 4.0.3 and I am very pleased so far. 
The next thing I want to test is VDI, so I:

- installed a Windows 7 machine
- ran sysprep and created a template

On my hosted-engine I ran:

    # ovirt-engine-extension-aaa-ldap-setup

where I chose '3 - Active Directory' and entered a non-admin-user for 
LDAP-Queries and successfully tested a Login.


    # engine-config -s SysPrepDefaultUser=admin
    # engine-config -s SysPrepDefaultPassword=interactive

This is my first problem: this supposedly is for the creation of the 
local admin account on the windows machines, right? These values do not 
have any effect: the web dialog for pool creation doesn't know about the 
password and the DefaultUser is created as "user" instead of "admin". Do 
I have to create a custom sysprep file and insert it into the web dialog 
to override these settings? Is there any other way to configure this?

The second problem is: when I create a pool based on my Windows 7 
template, how do I manage to automatically join the newly created 
virtual machines to our Active Directory? Where can I set the 
credentials of a domain admin that joins the machines to the domain?

Thank you in advance,
