Resolved Issues

  • When a user logs in multiple times, the user profile appears to be removed after the second login though the user's profile file exists in the UIA+Profile Writable Volume. Some of the issues observed due to this issue are as follows: files on the desktop are missing and wallpaper is reset to the default setting. [2889772]

  • RestoreTiles.exe has stopped working error is displayed when logging into a Windows 10 1909 agent virtual machine with a UIA+Profile Writable Volume which was previously used in Windows 10 1809. As a result, some of the Windows store apps such as Calculator, Sticky Notes, and Maps do not work properly. [2889777]

Known Issues

  • When using Microsoft Outlook Cached Exchange Mode with a UIA-only type Writable Volume and no profile persistence solution such as VMware Dynamic Environment Manager or roaming profiles, a new .ost cache file is created in the user’s volume upon each login.

    Workaround: Use a profile management solution.

  • When many users are logging into their desktops simultaneously, Writable Volumes may not get created for a few users and they might not be able to log in to a desktop.
    Note: This issue does not occur if the users already have an existing Writable Volume.

    Workaround: The users must log in again or have an administrator pre-create the Writable Volume for the user.

  • A Writable Volume move or copy operation may fail when bulk operations are performed on many volumes.

    Workaround: Retry the move or copy operation.
