After you install and configure User Environment Manager, you can start the User Environment Manager Management Console. The Management Console requires initial configuration and you can also configure which features you want to manage through the console.

Initial Configuration

When you start the Management Console for the first time, you must specify the location of the configuration share. With the configuration share set, you can start using the Management Console.

Management Console searches for the Immidio Flex Profiles Configuration.xml configuration file at the specified location. If the file exists, this central file is read and used as configuration for the Management Console. Otherwise, a new configuration file, with default values, and a General folder is created.

Note: Management Console configuration is stored in the central configuration share. Any changes that you make to the configuration affect all Management Console installations that are configured to use this share.

Further Configuration

You can control which features you want to manage through the Management Console by configuring the Management Console settings. You can display the settings by clicking Configure in the Management Console.

  • Personalization features. Each check box from the Personalization features corresponds to a tab in the Management Console, except the Silo support check box. Silo support lets you use Management Console to manage both General configuration files and silo-specific ones. When enabled, a Silos folder is created in the User Environment Manager configuration share. Within the Silos folder, you can create subfolders for each silo, and within these subfolders you can create and manage silo-specific Flex configuration files.
  • App-V configuration. The App-V tab contains settings for application virtualization support. For more information, see the VMware User Environment Manager Administration Guide.
  • Configuration Changelog. You can view a log of changes to personalization or user environment settings files. See information about the configuration changelog in the VMware User Environment Manager Administration Guide.
