After you create the SyncTool Group Policy, you can configure the GPO settings by using the Group Policy Management Editor.
|Run VMware UEM SyncTool during logon||Starts SyncTool during the login process before FlexEngine performs its path-based import. This way, the latest changes are always synchronized before FlexEngine processes them at logon.
Important: To synchronize changes at logoff, make sure that the SyncTool logoff command is configured by using the Group Policy logoff script mechanism as described in Run SyncTool at Logoff.
If FlexEngine is configured to run as a Group Policy extension and you want to run FlexEngine at logon when working offline, configure a logon script, which starts FlexEngine with the -OfflineImport argument as described in Installing and Configuring VMware User Environment Manager.
|Local Sync Path||The location where SyncTool stores all the User Environment Manager files. Configure to a local path, unique per user. Use %LOCALAPPDATA%\VMware UEM.|
|Watch local profile archive changes||Automatically triggers a synchronization in resident mode when a local modification to a profile archive is detected. For example, when closing an application for which DirectFlex is configured.|
|Synchronization Intervals|| During resident mode, synchronization occurs periodically. Configure this setting to specify how frequently the synchronization occurs. If you do not configure this setting, synchronization takes place every 3600 seconds (every hour).
|Synchronization Retry Intervals|| In resident mode, if a synchronization fails or is not allowed due to network thresholds, a retry is performed periodically. Configure this setting to specify how frequently the retry happens. If you do not configure this setting, retry takes place every 300 seconds (every 5 minutes).
|VMware UEM SyncTool logging||If Create VMware UEM SyncTool log file is enabled, a FlexSync.log file is created in the configured Local Sync Path.
|Synchronize profile archive backups|| Use this setting to configure when profile archive backups are synchronized. If you configure backups to be synchronized during a session, you can choose to do this once per session.
Note: Backups are never synchronized at login.
Note: If you do not configure this setting, profile archive backups are never synchronized.
|Sync local FlexEngine log file to network at logoff||When enabled, the local FlexEngine log file is uploaded to the central location. The name of the log file is modified to include the computer name.|
|Do not use laptop conflict resolution||Controls the behavior when a conflict is detected between a local and a central profile archive. A conflict occurs when both the local and central profile archives have changed since the last synchronization. In the default behavior, known as laptop conflict resolution, the local profile archive is selected. If this setting is enabled, conflict resolution for laptops is not applied and the profile archive with the most recent changes is selected.|
|Hide 'Sync' button in resident mode UI||When enabled, the Sync button is hidden in the resident mode UI.|
|Do not synchronize icons||When enabled, the .ICO files are not synchronized. This can improve performance on slow networks.|
|Trigger FlexEngine refresh||When enabled, SyncTool triggers a FlexEngine refresh if the synchronization results in updates for one or more of the selected item types: DirectFlex configuration, ADMX-based settings, application blocking, drive mappings, environment variables, file type associations, Horizon Smart Policies, printer mappings, privilege elevation, shortcuts, and triggered task settings.|
|Files to synchronize||Use this setting to only synchronize the configuration files or the user-specific files. By default, SyncTool synchronizes both Flex configuration files and the user-specific profile archives, profile archive backups, and log files.|
