With ADMX-based settings, you can use standard ADMX templates to configure user policies. FlexEngine applies the configured settings as the computer starts.

ADMX-based settings can also be refreshed during the session by using a triggered task or the command-line interface.

By default, FlexEngine does not overwrite existing information in the policy registry locations. If you use VMware Dynamic Environment Manager ADMX-based settings with Active Directory group policies and configure overlapping policy settings, the Active Directory settings take effect.

To change this behavior, configure the AllowAdmxOverride setting. For more information, see FlexEngine Configuration for Computer Environment Settings in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Administration Guide at VMware Docs.
