VMware provides a default set of policy (snapvol.cfg) and script files with the App Volumes Agent. In certain cases, you might need to add custom policies for application compatibility reasons. This information helps you understand the Default and Custom folders.
The policy and script files in the Default folder are factory-shipped and get installed with the App Volumes Agent. These files are located in the base virtual machine at \CloudVolumes\Agent\Config\Default.
The policy files and scripts must be created in the Custom folder, which resides in the App Volumes Agent installation folder. Customization of any policy and script files are applicable to all attached volumes.
Policy and script files in the Custom folder are preserved during an App Volumes Agent upgrade.
|\Custom||custom policies with global scope that apply to all volumes attached|
|\Custom\system||custom policies applicable to System Writable Volume|
|\Custom\provisioning||custom policies applicable during App packaging|
|\Custom\app||custom policies applicable to all App packages|
virtualize_registry policy rules are not supported in the Custom policies.
