Profile Management

Profile roaming for non-domain-joined VDA machines (preview)

Citrix Profile Management now supports user profile roaming on non-domain-joined VDA machines in a customer-managed Azure subscription. A user’s profile (including the user’s personal settings, files, and folders) can now roam with the user when the user logs on to a non-domain-joined VDA session.

Prerequisites for using the feature:

  • VDA requirement: Windows VDA version 2109 or later
  • Workspace Environment Management (WEM) requirement: WEM agent version 2109.2.0.1 or later

To use the feature, complete the following Profile Management settings:

  1. Set the Enable Profile Management policy to Enabled.

  2. Set the Path to user store policy to a valid path that is accessible to your VDA. For example, a user store is accessible when it resides on a file server or an Azure Files share.

  3. Enable the Citrix Profile Management profile container feature and put entire user profiles in profile containers. To put an entire user profile in its profile container, add an asterisk (*) to the profile container list. For more information, see Put an entire user profile in its profile container.

  4. Set the Enable credential-based access to user stores policy to Enabled and save the profile storage server’s credentials in WEM or Windows Credential Manager so that Profile Management can access user stores. For more information, see Enable credential-based access to user stores.
