  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.

  2. get rid of excessive vhdx white-space at log off !

    Automatically get rid of excessive white-space inside VHDX at logff. White-space is becoming a nightmare. We are seeing disks doubling their size at an unpredictable interval. Only option at the moment is unsupported Shrink powershell script!

  4. 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. Support for Notebooks with redirected offline files / csc in user profil

    Hi,

    support of offline files with redirected folders like downloads in userprofile on a notebook would be great.

    Thanks.

  6. redirections.xml for Office Containers

    We need to exclude files and folders in Office Containers

    Specific we need tot exclude 'some' Teams data as currently the FSLogix 'Office Containers' solution grows very large in size. Teams will clean the data afterwords resulting in very large numbers of whitespace. The VHDX has 5 GB of actual data, and another 5 GB of whitespace.

    redirections.xml for Office Containers is currently not present in FSLOGIX.

    (redirections.xml for Profile Containers only works for profile container)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Automatically apply Microsoft Teams exclusions through GPO

    Currently, a few folders need to be excluded within the redirections.xml file. Maybe this can be automated by enabling the exclusions based on a Group Policy. This would simplify the correct enrollment of Teams within a WVD environment.

  12. 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 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.

  14. 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.

  17. Excel 365 freezes when saving or opening files on the desktop

    Has anyone else noticed lockups with Excel 365 (on Version 2020: Build 12527.21330 Click-to-Run) when a very large xlsx file is opened or saved to that's located on the desktop using the latest version of FSLogix (2.9.7621.30127)? We did not have this issue on the previous FSlogix release but have had users complain about Excel locking up ever since we moved to this release. Fell back to the older release and same xlsx files work fine.

    Posted this in the FSLogix QA forum and was asked to post it here.

  19. Enable multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections to OneDrive

    By design OneDrive doesn't support multiple simultaneous connections / multiple concurrent connections. When using Citrix Virtual Apps with OneDrive folder redirection enabled on RDSH hosts this is a must.

  20. 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.
