If you do not configure the FlexEngine logoff command to run from a logoff script when VMware Dynamic Environment Manager is configured to work with a Group Policy Object (GPO), FlexEngine is not run when the user logs out.

Problem

DirectFlex settings can be saved, but Windows settings are not saved. Windows settings do not load.

Cause

If the FlexEngine logoff command is not configured to run from a logoff script, the export does not occur. This means that any settings dependent on logout will not be saved. Settings configured for DirectFlex might load, but other Windows settings cannot load.

Note: This issue only occurs when VMware Dynamic Environment Manager is configured to work with a GPO. VMware Dynamic Environment Manager configured in NoAD mode does not require a logoff script.

Solution

  1. Configure the FlexEngine logoff command to run from a logoff script. The command reads the setting through the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager GPO. For instructions on configuring the logoff script, see "Configure FlexEngine to Run from a Logoff Script" in Installing and Configuring VMware Dynamic Environment Manager.
