You configure the location of the central share that stores the Flex configuration files in the Flex config files setting. Flex configuration files contain VMware Dynamic Environment Manager data that FlexEngine uses to read and store user settings. FlexEngine runs with the user's credentials, and processes each Flex configuration file for which the user has NTFS read access.


  1. In the Group Policy Management Editor, double-click the Flex config files setting.
  2. Select Enabled.
  3. In the Central location of Flex config files text box, enter the location of the central configuration share.
    Use a UNC path for this setting. Typically, this path points to the General folder created by the Management Console in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share.
    For example: \\Filesrv\DemConfig$\General
  4. Select Process folder recursively to also enable processing Flex configuration files that are located in subfolders of the specified path.
