With ADMX-based settings, you can use standard ADMX templates to configure user policies. FlexEngine applies the configured settings when the user logs in.

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, enable the advanced Override existing user policy settings configuration setting. For more information, see Dynamic Environment Manager FlexEngine Advanced Settings in NoAD Mode and Dynamic Environment Manager FlexEngine Group Policy Object Advanced Configuration Settings in the Installing and Configuring VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Guide at VMware Docs.
