To use Smart Policies, your system environment must meet certain requirements.

  • You must install Horizon Agent and VMware Dynamic Environment Manager 9.4 or later on a remote Windows desktop.
  • Users must use Horizon Client to connect to remote Linux desktops that you manage with Smart Policies.
  • The DEMEnable option must be enabled and the DEMNetworkPath option must be set in the /etc/vmware/viewagent-custom.conf file. See Edit Configuration Files on a Linux Desktop.
  • You must install the client packages for accessing network shared storage. On an Ubuntu system, for example, install the nfs-common package for NFS-enabled shared storage and the cifs-utils package for Samba-enabled storage.
