After you install VMware Dynamic Environment Manager on Windows desktops or Terminal Services, you must configure FlexEngine and the Management Console.

To have VMware Dynamic Environment Manager running correctly, you must configure FlexEngine.

  • Create and configure an Active Directory GPO for VMware Dynamic Environment Manager. You must configure Group Policies to enable FlexEngine to run when the users log on to their Windows machines, and set up the locations of the configuration and profile archives shares. The rest of the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Group Policies are optional.
  • Configure a logoff script to enable FlexEngine to run at Windows logoff process.

If you do not use a GPO to configure FlexEngine, you can configure it by using command-line arguments. See FlexEngine Command-Line Arguments. Or, you can use the NoAD mode. See Installing and Configuring FlexEngine in NoAD Mode.
