To use View Persona Management with View desktops, you must create desktop pools with a View Persona Management agent installed on each machine.

You cannot use View Persona Management on RDS desktop pools, which run on Remote Desktop Services (RDS) hosts.



  • Generate a snapshot or template from the virtual machine and create an automated desktop pool.
    You can configure View Persona Management with pools that contain full virtual machines or linked clones. The pools can use dedicated or floating assignments.
  • (Optional) To use View Persona Management with manual desktop pools, select machines on which Horizon Agent with the View Persona Management option is installed.


Note: After you deploy View Persona Management on your View desktop pools, if you remove the View Persona Management setup option on the View machines, or uninstall Horizon Agent altogether, the local user profiles are removed from the machines of users who are not currently logged in. For users who are currently logged in, the user profiles are downloaded from the remote profile repository during the uninstall process.
