  1. 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.

  2. Repair new post in the Fslogix forum

    Hello,

    the forum is broken i tried edge, chrome and even IE but allways when i want to create a new topic the fields for forum category are empty.
    But as the category is a required field i cant post an issue with the admx / adml files they are broken since a few releases and bring this error :

    Resource '$(string.1012a2b91972a53a7888838a3a276834)' referenced in attribute displayName could not be found. File

    same or similar issue is with version

    FSLogixApps2.9.7621.30127 and FSLogixApps2.9.7576.47294 and FSLogixApps2.9.7654.46150

    Version FSLogixApps2.9.7349.30108 seems to be okay and works.

  3. 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. I want to set "Cache Directory" and "Write Cache Directory" on the D drive of Ddsv4 series to improve performance.

    I would like to set a "cache directory" and a "write cache directory" on the D drive of the Ddsv4 series to improve performance, but the Japanese ms support team told me that it is not recommended.

  5. 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.

  7. BackupLocalProfileWhenVHDShouldApply

    Add an option similar to DeleteLocalProfileWhenVHDShouldApply, but don't delete the profile, make a backup (move the folder.) This would certainly be helpful when migrating from a classic profile solution to FSLogix.
    Added bonus would be an option to delete the backup after a set number of days

  8. 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.

  9. group Policy changes

    Add the registry option CleanupInvalidSessions to the admx for group policies.

    Also the upgrading the admx from 2.9.7349.30108 to 2.9.7621.30127, cause a setting to now be missing for concurrentsessions.

  10. 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)

  11. FSLogix Logging on network for non-persistent desktops

    When pointing FSLogix to the network, we use \server\share\logs\%computername%. However when the desktop gets reused eventually, FSlogix does not append the logs but overwrites them so it doesn't help much. We have tried using some other variables to make it unique (%localtime% and %username% but FSLogix does not seem to understand them.

    We need logs to append.

  12. Ability to create exemptions for Office Containers.

    For those of use who only use Office Containers, we'd like the ability to filter/exclude folders. An example would be to have the ability to filter out the CACHE folders in Microsoft Teams which bloats the VHDX file.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Update frx.exe migrate-vhd command to be switch-order-agnostic, or update documentation

    When running vhd migration commands, the documentation does NOT specify that the exe is sensitive to the order of the flags!

    This works:

    frx.exe -migrate-vhd -size-mbs=somesize -src="somepath" -dest="someotherpath"

    This does not work:

    frx.exe -migrate-vhd -src="somepath" -dest="someotherpath" -size-mbs=somesize

    This would be very easy to add to the documentation on the command line arguments, or optionally if frx.exe could be updated to parse the commands in any order that would be a little bit more friendly. We ended up writing a custom VHD migrator script that creates a new vhd and THEN migrates to ensure that this always works, because we couldn't…

  19. Offer option to not pre-create excluded profile folders

    Some software balks when it finds a folder it expects to create already present, sometimes not working at all and sometimes creating instead an alternate folder with a different name, which of course then winds up in the profile container rather than in local_username.

  20. 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"
