  1. We need a functionality to specify a path for the local_username redirection folder

    In Citrix MCS/PVS environments the cache gets filled too fast, so we need an opportunity to put it the redirected folders on a cache drive.

  3. Add an additional VHDAccessMode option that will allow new sessions to take over R/W control of the VHD

    In cases where a Session Host or VDI VM hangs or becomes inaccessible we would like the users to be able to log into a new session host and have it take over R/W control of the VHD. It could create an unlock flag with security token or send a command to the system that has the existing lock to have it try to close its connection gracefully, but if nothing happens in, say, 30 seconds then any changes made on the other system are forfeited and the new system will have full control of the user’s VHD. This feature…

  5. 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.

  6. Administrative tooling

    To effectively troubleshoot and manage hundreds of VHDs there should be tooling to list contents to see why it's ballooning, check the startup and desktop folders, selectively delete certain parts, scan for white space then defrag the disk, repair corruption etc. Even when the user is actively using the VHD file. There are some elaborate homebrew Powershell scripts but nothing official.

  7. Allow RW access from multiple VMs concurrently

    Currently if you set your ProfileType=1 it will create one RW disk. If the user connects to another VM it will cause an error. It would be great if users were able to connect to multiple VMs with RW access.

    This might be possible by storing each RW disk with a distinct name, something like my-server-01-RW.vhd.

  8. Migration tool for local user profiles to FSLogix container

    It's not clear how to migrate a lot of on-premise local profiles to FSLogix container. We need tools and documentation about best practice of different kind of migration.

  9. 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.

  10. Allow resizing existing VHDX-profiles

    It would be great to be able to increase the maximum size of an already existing VHDX-profile without first having to remove the old profile or migrating to a new profile.

  11. Configure AppMasking rules using Group Policy

    It would be great if you could configure AppMasking rules via GPO and then apply them to an OU containing the WVD VMs.

    Perhaps you specify the path in the configuration and the GPO copies them to the policy folder and then apply it(them) to the local machine when it joins the domain.

    This way you could ensure it gets applied immediately and remove the need to deploy it(them) with a script (which isn't as instantaneous or reliable).

  13. Ability to use same profile for Windows 10 and 2019 Server

    it would be great to be able to use the same profile for Windows 10 an Server 2019. The users could use the same profile for their Windows 10 Workstation and Server 2019 Remote Desktop Session Host with the same Settings.

  16. 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?

  17. Provide a mechanism to temporarily lock a profile container from being used

    To allow for opportunistic VHD "grooming" scripts or other maintenance activities, provide a way to temporarily lock access to a user's profile container in a way that only delays the user logon, with a customizable message to that effect being displayed to the user, e.g. "Please wait while your profile is being shrunk - logon will continue normally in a few minutes"

  18. Add the ability to delete Profile Containers as scheduled maintenance

    Would like the ability to have a method to mark Profile Containers no longer in use, for "pending deletion". We may also want to have a way to mark archived container files as "Preservation Hold". Otherwise, the profile containers can be retained for some period of time and eventually deleted.
    The attribute could possibly follow a Directory Operation such as marking a user as "disabled". That could trigger a workflow that would set a flag on the container or it's metadata, for follow-up action later.
    The idea is to provide a method to customers to be as efficient with their…

  19. Option to redirect files with redirections.xml

    It would be nice to be able to exclude files from profile container and not just folders using redirections.xml
    For instance Microsoft suggests excluding *.txt from appdata\roaming\microsoft\teams
    But there is no way to accomplish this using fslogix

  20. Allow to use Active Directory User Attributes as variables for vhd-path

    It would be good if you could use AD attributes as variables for the VHD path. (e.g. city, country, department), so you would be more flexible.
