  1. 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?

  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. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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"

  7. 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

  8. 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…

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  19. 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).

  20. 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.
