The View Persona Management ADM Template file contains group policy settings that you add to the Group Policy configuration on individual systems or on an Active Directory server. You must configure the group policy settings to set up and control various aspects of View Persona Management.

The ADM Template file, ViewPM.adm, is installed with the other View ADM Template files in the install_directory\VMware\VMware View\Server\extras\GroupPolicyFiles directory on the View Connection Server host.

When you install View Agent with the View Persona Management setup option, the ViewPM.adm file is also installed on the virtual machine in the install_directory\VMware\VMware View\Agent\bin directory.

After you add the ViewPM.adm file to your Group Policy configuration, the policy settings are located in the Persona Management folder in the Group Policy window.
