The Horizon Persona Management ADMX template file contains group policy settings that you add to the Group Policy configuration on individual systems or on an Active Directory server. You must configure the group policy settings to set up and control various aspects of Horizon Persona Management.

The ADMX template file is named ViewPM.admx.

The ADMX files are available in a bundled .zip file named VMware-Horizon-Extras-Bundle-x.x.x-yyyyyyy.zip, which you can download from the VMware download site at https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/downloads. Under Desktop & End-User Computing, select the VMware Horizon 7 download, which includes the bundled .zip file.

After you add the ViewPM.admx file to your Group Policy configuration, the policy settings are located in the Persona Management folder in the Group Policy window.
