  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  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. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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"

  10. Search Issues with non english office installations and fslogix

    Currently seeing issues with search, when office is non-english. In our example Office is norwegian. Issue occurs when user searches for an email addres selected from dropdown when typing. Office then adds the to: email@domain.com format. In norwegian installation this becomes til: email@domain.com resulting in something went wrong error. Changing the filter from norwegian to english search filter it works as expected. Freetext searchnis ok. Issue is only when outlook adds the to/from: filters in non-english

  13. 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).

  14. Confirm multi-forest support for Fslogix app masking rules

    We've been informed by Microsoft Unified support that app masking rules only support single domain configurations. This seems like a considerable limitation given the prevalence of multi-domain configurations in large enterprises. We are using app masking rules in a multi-forest setup (resource forest and multiple users forests) with domain trusts in place. This seems to work, but we'd like it to be formally supported. We are aware of other large enterprises using a similar configuration as well.

  16. 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.

  17. Include everything needed for Office in O365 Containers, or add the ability to modify the template so it can be managed.

    The office 365 Container does not store "Everything" required for persisting office settings and files in a non persistent environment. For instance, the Email signatures.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Ability to customize RW.vhdx file name to use one folder for different user profile versions

    I'm building a Citrix farm with Windows 2016, 2012 and Windows 10 machines, but cannot use a single user profile folder share, because I cannot customize RW.vhdx file name as I can do with the profile vhdx.
