To configure VMware Dynamic Environment Manager to apply computer environment settings, edit the Windows registry settings in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware UEM\Agent\Computer Configuration key as necessary until they comply with the descriptions that follow.
Required Registry Settings for VMware Dynamic Environment Manager to Apply Computer Environment Settings
If the following settings are missing or incomplete, the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager agent does not attempt to process the computer environment settings configuration at start-up.
|Value Name||Value Type||Mandatory||Default||Notes|
|Enabled||REG_DWORD||X||To enable Computer Environment settings processing, set to 1.|
Location of the configuration folder. If not configured, no computer settings are processed.
Use a UNC path. Typically, the path points to the General folder, which the Management Console creates in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share.
|LogFileName||REG_EXPAND_SZ||Location of the log file, specified as a fully qualified UNC path, including the filename.|
|LogLevel||REG_DWORD||2||Log level. 0–4 for DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL, respectively. Defaults to WARN, if a log filename is configured.|
|AdmxLogging||REG_DWORD||0||If a log filename is configured, controls verbose logging to a separate LogFileName-ADMX.log file. To enable, set this value to 1.|
|MaximumLogFileSize||REG_DWORD||0||Specifies the maximum size of the log file in kB. Defaults to 0, indicating no maximum size.|
|RevertOnShutdown||REG_DWORD||1||If set to 1, the default, computer settings are reverted at shutdown. Otherwise, they remain as set.|
The amount of time in seconds to wait for the config file path to become available at startup. If the timeout expires, no computer settings are processed Configuring this setting to 0 disables the retry altogether. In this case, no computer settings are processed if the path is not immediately available at start-up.
If configured, computer environment settings are refreshed starting from when they are applied at computer start-up. By default, computer environment settings are refreshed until a user logs on. If ContinueRefreshAfterLogon is set to 1, the settings continue to be refreshed after a user logs on.
The configured interval specifies the amount of time to wait in seconds between those refresh events.
|RefreshIntervalOffset||REG_DWORD||0||If interval-based refresh is enabled, this setting specifies an optional random component to the interval length. The effective interval is equal to RefreshInterval + Random (1...RefreshIntervalOffset) seconds.|
|ContinueRefreshAfterLogon||REG_DWORD||0||If set to 1 and interval-based refresh is enabled, computer environment settings continue to be refreshed after a user logs on.|
