The VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share is a central share on a file server. It contains all the configuration files for personalization and application configuration management of VMware Dynamic Environment Manager. FlexEngine reads configuration data from the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share when a user logs in or logs out of the environment, or when the user opens or closes applications that are configured with DirectFlex.
The VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share has a predefined structure. The first time when you start the Management Console, the General folder is created in the configuration share. The General folder contains the Flex configuration files that you use to define settings for personalization and application configuration management.
The General folder also contains the mandatory FlexRepository folder. The Management Console creates the FlexRepository folder the first time you configure a user environment setting, such as a printer mapping. The FlexRepository folder contains all the configuration files for the user environment settings and condition sets.
