  1. Ability to redirect data (machine or user locations) to one or more custom containers

    Ability to redirect specific directories to one or more specific VHDX containers. Taking the existing functionality of O365 and Profile containers but empowering administrators to define exactly which paths should be redirected and to which custom containers. Paths might be global paths such as C:\Program Data\ and would need to allow for per user abstraction/virtualisation of those directories as App Masking redirection rules provide currently.

  2. Be able to delete old files with redirections.xml

    Using redirections.xml to exclude folders such as cache and temporary folders. In case you exclude a folder in the xml file, only data added to the folder after the exclusion will not be kept in the profile container. But old data in an existing profile container will stay there. Then you need cleanup scripts to do that part. Why not be able to do that from redirections.xml?

  3. Vhdx auto-shrink on attach or detach

    It would be really handy if the fslogix agent would be able to perform a shrink or cleanup action on the container, either during logon or log off to help keep vhdx's to as small as possible.

  4. Migration tools for native roaming profiles

    Migration scipts for roaming profiles (or Citrix UPM) are discontinued. I need something to prepare migration for 600 users. Manual migration is just not possible.

  5. Allow redirected folders to be stored in a separate container

    Allow redirected folders (Desktop, Downloads, Documents, etc) to be stored in a separate container that way the profile can be "reset" or deleted without loss of data. This would also hybrid on-prem/azure environments easier as you could leverage cloud cache for folder redirection as well.

    Make it visible to the End-Users when hovering over de systray-application in WHICH mode te Profile-container is mounted. At the moment this is not possible to see if this is in ReadWrite-mode or Read-Only mode. And this can be important to know for the end-user.
    I assume the application knows in which mode it is working, so it must be easy to make this available via a tool-tip when hovering over the systray-application.
    Thanks,
    Chris Marreel

  7. FRXTrayTool should show Office Container status

    The Tray Tool shows profile status and all the logs, but the status indicator at the top is ONLY for Profile status. I think there should be two status indicators, one for Profiles and one for Office Containers. Ideally the tray tool could read which component(s) are enabled and show status for only the enabled Container(s).

  8. Auto Delete of VHD/VHDX if Corrupt

    When a container is becoming corrupt we are finding that the VHD/VHDX is stuck on 0MB and is pretty much useless. Rather than troubleshooting/manually deleting the container it would be good if a GPO could attempt to re-create a fresh container on logon rather than mounting the same container that is obviously corrupt.

    If a there was a configurable GPO that could for example delete and re-create any container that was <500mb then it would fix the corrupt container itself by re-creating it.

  9. Allow redirection of data, not in the profile, to an existing container

    This request is to all an administrator to specify data, that is outside of the profile, to be included in an existing container, most likely the Office Container.

    As an example, an organization has a line of business application that stores user information in a folder such as c:\LOBAppName\LOBUserData. There is a desire that this data roam with the user in non-persistent environments.

  10. FSLogix automation

    full automation abilities so everything in FSLogix can be scripted.
    This can provide scale around new deployments and a enable the move to a full devops deployment and management of WVD Session Hosts.

    With the new model of App Attach, User Profiles and OS Images as 3 separate parts of the whole solution we will need to build at scale and deploy with scripts and templates, which means the need for 100% automation of the solution, end to end.
    This requires that everything is scriptable.

  11. Warning Message When Connection to Container is Lost

    When the File Server that you container is connected to goes down or you lose connection to the container, there is no pop up to give the users any information.

    Their Outlook and any other application being cached will hang and therefore they will not know what to do. As an administrator you can check using the tools.

    Please can something be made available for the user to be informed when connection is lost or at least something they can check?

  16. security make java visible only for specific applications

    As old java versions are often a specific requirement for aged application, they rappresent a huge security issue.
    To eliminate security risks, FSLogix could hide java installation to all users and make it visible only for specific application/web sites.

    Idea is to use application masking to hide all installed java versions (no default java version) and then allow accessing them using version control rule.

    For example, CoreHR, needed by all users, requires java 1.6 installed. Ideally FSlogix can hide it using applciation masking rule preventing security risks, but make it available while requested by CoreHR only. Same for other java…

  18. O365 Exclusions

    It would be really useful if you could make exclusions using the Office 365 Container like you can with the Profile Container. After speaking with an FSLogix SME this was not setup to protect the O365 Container and ensure there are no problems. As new versions have been released and the product has matured, is this something that can be introduced?

  19. Site-aware Cloud Cache read prioritization

    Currently, when you specify CCDLocations, the first one is used for all non-cached reads. This is an issue when there are multiple hot-hot sites in place, as we then need two different configurations targeting the sites with a different order to the CCDLocations in order to force the VDI in that site to read from the CCDLocation located locally at that site. We are currently solving this with two Group Policy registry preferences, each using item-level targeting to apply to a specific site, but a native mechanism to auto-detect the closest CCDLocation to use for reads would be preferred.

  20. frxtray.exe and privcacy: allow to hide operational view for non-Admins

    In other words "how to restrict standard users to basic view?"

    Users could view other users logoff time in the operational view.

    Besides disabling frxtray completely is there any workaround like permissions on a registry key?
