Upload Policy Parameters



Name and Description

Name and description of the policy.

Upload change interval

Denotes how frequently the client attempts to synchronize with the server. The default is every 60 minutes. End users can override the policy in effect at an endpoint. See Sync Now and Snooze. The Upload change interval affects the frequency of automatic CVD snapshot creation. See CVD Snapshot Generation and Retention.

Protected volumes

Denotes which volumes to centralize from the endpoint to the CVD in the server. The system volume is included by default. You can add more volumes by using the assigned drive letters.

Optimize for Horizon View check box

Optimizes performance on servers that use Horizon View to manage virtual machines.

Unprotected Area tab

Defines the rules to unprotect files and directories.

Rules list

Paths that are explicitly unprotected by Horizon Mirage.

Rule Exceptions list

Paths that are exceptions to unprotect rules in the Rules list. Horizon Mirage protects exceptions to unprotect rules.

User Area tab

Defines the rules to unprotect files and directories defined as user files. These rules are used instead of Unprotected Area rules when certain system flows specifically refer to user files.

The tab contains Rules and Rule Exception areas, used in the same way as in the Unprotected Area tab.

Advanced Options tab

Provides advanced policy options for optimization of the CVD policy.

Show Factory Rules check box

Shows the Factory upload policy settings in the rules list, the Horizon Mirage mandatory settings that the administrator cannot change. The factory rules are dimmed in the rules list.

Export button

Exports policy rules to an XML file for editing and backup. Horizon Mirage factory rules are not exported, even if they appear in the policy window.

Import button

Imports policy rules from an XML file.
