Profile Management

Replicate user stores

You can replicate a user store to multiple paths in addition to the path that the Path to user store policy specifies - upon each logon and logoff. The feature is implemented through the Replicate user stores policy. To synchronize to the user stores files and folders modified during a session, enable active write back. This feature does not currently support full container solutions. Enabling the policy can increase system I/O and might prolong logoffs.

You can configure the policy through Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy Management, Citrix Studio, and Workspace Environment Management (WEM).

  • To configure the Replicate user stores policy through Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy Management, complete the following steps:

    1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor.
    2. Under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Citrix Components > Profile Management > Advanced settings, double-click the Replicate user stores policy.

      The paths to replicated user stores - along with the path that the Path to user store policy specifies - form a complete list of remote user profile storage.

    4. For your changes to take effect, run the gpupdate /force command from the command prompt on the machine where Profile Management is installed. Log off from all sessions and then log back on.

    1. In the left pane of Citrix Studio, click Policies.
