The NoAD mode is an alternative to configuring User Environment Manager with Active Directory Group Policy. You do not need to create a GPO, logon and logoff scripts, or configure Windows Group Policy settings.

In NoAD mode, all User Environment Manager GPO settings are ignored. If settings from a previous GPO-based deployment are encountered, no actions are performed and a message is logged to the FlexEngine log file.

Note

SyncTool does not support the NoAD mode. You must continue using Group Policy configuration for User Environment Manager if you use SyncTool.
