When you retire a Flex configuration file, you mark the profile archives and profile archive backups of the file for deletion. The deletion is completed the next time the users log out. Retired Flex configuration files can be reactivated later.


  1. Start the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console.
  2. Right-click on the Flex configuration file you want to retire and click Retire.
  3. In the pop-up window, confirm that you want to retire the file.


The application title is grayed out, indicating it is retired. The profile archives and profile archive backups are deleted when a user logs out.
