To use View Persona Management with View desktops, you must create desktop pools with a View Persona Management agent installed on each desktop.

You cannot use View Persona Management on Microsoft Terminal Servers.

You cannot use View Persona Management with desktops that run in local mode.

Verify that View Agent with the View Persona Management setup option is installed on the virtual machine that you use to create the desktop pool. See Install View Agent with the View Persona Management Option.

If you intend to configure View Persona Management policies for this pool only, verify that you added the View Persona Management ADM Template file to the virtual machine and configured group policy settings in the Local Computer Policy configuration. See Add the Persona Management ADM Template to a Single System and Configure View Persona Management Policies.

Generate a snapshot or template from the virtual machine and create an automated desktop pool.

You can configure View Persona Management with pools that contain full virtual machines or linked clones. The pools can use dedicated or floating assignments.

(Optional) To use View Persona Management with manual desktop pools, select desktop sources on which View Agent with the View Persona Management option is installed.

Note

After you deploy View Persona Management on your View desktops, if you remove the View Persona Management setup option on the desktops, or uninstall View Agent altogether, the local user profiles are removed from the desktops of users who are not currently logged in. For users who are currently logged in, the user profiles are downloaded from the remote profile repository during the uninstall process.
