This topic describes how a Citrix clone receives a Device ID and is assigned to a policy.

The reregister command is needed to register new clones with a unique Device ID.

When reregister now is run, a clone performs the following operations:

  1. The endpoint requests a new Device ID.
  2. The new Device ID is identified as a VDI endpoint on the backend.
  3. The endpoint inherits the policy from the primary image unless you have previously created sensor groups and the installed sensor matches a sensor group’s criteria. Manual policy assignment post-installation overrides the inheritance.
    Note: With the 3.7+ Windows sensor, a reboot is needed on VDI clones to fully apply new ransomware protections.
