NoAD mode is an alternative to configuring the client component, FlexEngine, with Active Directory Group Policy. You do not need to create a GPO, logon and logoff scripts, or configure Windows Group Policy settings.

In NoAD mode, FlexEngine ignores all VMware Dynamic Environment Manager GPO settings. If settings from a previous GPO-based deployment are encountered, no actions are performed and a message is logged to the FlexEngine log file.
