View includes many Group Policy administrative (ADM) templates for centralizing the management and configuration of View components and remote desktops.

After you import these templates into Active Directory, you can use them to set policies that apply to the following groups and components:

  • All systems regardless of which user logs in
  • All users regardless of the system they log in to
  • View Connection Server configuration
  • Horizon Client configuration
  • View Agent configuration

After a GPO is applied, properties are stored in the local Windows registry of the specified component.

You can use GPOs to set all the policies that are available from the View Administrator user interface (UI). You can also use GPOs to set policies that are not available from the UI. For a complete list and description of the settings available through ADM templates, see Setting Up Desktop and Application Pools in View.
