The Horizon Persona Management ADMX template file and Horizon Persona Management ADM template file contain group policy settings that allow you to configure Horizon Persona Management. Before you can configure the policies, you must add the ADMX template file or ADM template file to the local system or Active Directory server.

About this task

To configure Horizon Persona Management on a single system, you can add the group policy settings to the Local Computer Policy configuration on that local system.

To configure Horizon Persona Management for a desktop pool, you can add the group policy settings to the Local Computer Policy configuration on the virtual machine that you use as a parent or template for deploying the desktop pool.

To configure Horizon Persona Management at the domain-wide level and apply the configuration to many Horizon 7 machines or your whole deployment, you can add the group policy settings to Group Policy Objects (GPOs) on your Active Directory server. In Active Directory, you can create an OU for the Horizon 7 machines that use Horizon Persona Management, create one or more GPOs, and link the GPOs to the OU. To configure separate Horizon Persona Management policies for different types of users, you can create OUs for particular sets of Horizon 7 machines and apply different GPOs to the OUs.

For example, you might create one OU for Horizon 7 machines with Horizon Persona Management and another OU for physical computers on which the standalone Horizon Persona Management software is installed.

For an example of implementing Active Directory group policies in Horizon, see "Active Directory Group Policy Example" in the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.
