To reduce resource usage and increase performance when using the Workspace ONE portal in non-persistent desktops, also known as stateless desktops, you can configure the client with settings optimized for using it in a non-persistent View desktop.

Procedure

Install the VMware Identity Manager Desktop application in the template that is used for the non-persistent View desktops using the recommended command-line installer options.

/v Installer Option

Description

ENABLE_AUTOUPDATE = 0

Prevents the automatic update of the VMware Identity Manager Desktop application to a newer version. Typically, your View administrator updates the application in the template.

INSTALL_MODE = RUN_FROM_SHARE

If you plan to have the users use ThinApp packages in these View desktops, use this option to have the ThinApp packages streamed from the server instead of downloaded to the Windows system.

The following is an example of installing the VMware Identity Manager Desktop application with an optimal configuration for non-persistent View desktops where the users are expected to use ThinApp packages. The WORKSPACE_SERVER option specifies the VMware Identity Manager server for this installation.
