To configure VMware Dynamic Environment Manager to apply computer environment settings, edit the Windows registry settings in the HKLM\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware UEM\Agent\Computer Configuration key as necessary until they comply with the descriptions that follow.

Required Registry Settings for VMware Dynamic Environment Manager to Apply Computer Environment Settings

If the following settings are missing or incomplete, the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager agent does not attempt to process the computer environment settings configuration at start-up.

Value Name Value Type Mandatory Default Notes
Enabled REG_DWORD X To enable Computer Environment settings processing, set to 1.
ConfigFilePath REG_SZ X

Location of the configuration folder. If not configured, no computer settings are processed.

Use a UNC path. Typically, the path points to the General folder, which the Management Console creates in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configuration share.

LogFileName REG_EXPAND_SZ Location of the log file, specified as a fully qualified UNC path, including the filename.
LogLevel REG_DWORD 2 Log level. 0–4 for DEBUG, INFO, WARN, ERROR, FATAL, respectively. Defaults to WARN, if a log filename is configured.
AdmxLogging REG_DWORD 0 If a log filename is configured, controls verbose logging to a separate LogFileName-ADMX.log file. To enable, set this value to 1.
MaximumLogFileSize REG_DWORD 0 Specifies the maximum size of the log file in kB. Defaults to 0, indicating no maximum size.
RevertOnShutdown REG_DWORD 1 If set to 1, the default, computer settings are reverted at shutdown. Otherwise, they remain as set.
MaxConfigFilePathWait REG_DWORD 30

The amount of time in seconds to wait for the config file path to become available at startup. If the timeout expires, no computer settings are processed Configuring this setting to 0 disables the retry altogether. In this case, no computer settings are processed if the path is not immediately available at start-up.

RefreshInterval REG_DWORD 0

If configured, computer environment settings are refreshed between being applied at computer start-up and a user logging on.

The configured interval specifies the amount of time to wait in seconds between those refresh events.

RefreshIntervalOffset REG_DWORD 0 If interval-based refresh is enabled, this setting specifies an optional random component to the interval length. The effective interval is equal to RefreshInterval + Random (1...RefreshIntervalOffset) seconds.
Note: Computer accounts rather than user accounts access the file shares that host the configuration folder and the log file. See VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Configuration Share and Profile Archives Share for information about Share permissions and NTFS security permissions.
