When you define a Horizon Smart Policy in User Environment Manager, you can add conditions that must be met for the policy to take effect. For example, you can add a condition that disables the client drive redirection feature only if a user connects to the remote desktop from outside your corporate network.

Important:

You must add the following conditions to a Horizon Smart Policy definition in order for the supported policy settings to take effect in a remote Linux desktop. These are the only conditions that are currently supported. If other conditions are set, the end result of the condition evaluation is false.

Table 1. Required Conditions for Remote Linux Desktops

Condition

Description

Operating System Architeacture

Checks the architecture of the operating system. The value must be set to Linux.

Endpoint IP address

Checks whether the endpoint IP address is in or not in the specified range. Empty fields at the start of the range are interpreted as 0, and the ones at the end as 255.

You can, however, set multiple Endpoint IP address conditions, as shown in the following example.

Operating system is Linux
AND Endpoint IP address is in range 11.22.33.44 - 11.22.33.54
OR Endpoint IP address is in range 11.22.33.66 - 11.22.33.77

For detailed information about adding and editing conditions in the User Environment Manager Management Console, see the VMware User Environment Manager Administration Guide.
