You can configure Profile management using Group Policies and the .ini file. Configuration settings are applied as follows:
- Settings defined by Group Policies take precedence. The .ini file will only be queried if a policy setting is set to Not Configured.
Note: If you apply a Group Policy Object selectively to sites and domains within an Organizational Unit, a further precedence applies. See Defining the scope of application of Group Policy documented at https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754948(v=ws.10).aspx. In addition, note that domain and OU Group Policies take precedence over local policies.
- Where a setting is not defined by a policy, Profile management tries to read the setting from the .ini file.
- If a setting is not configured by a group policy or in the .ini file, the default setting is used.
In XenDesktop 7 deployments, be aware of the additional precedence introduced by XenDesktop policies. For information on this, see the topic User profiles in the XenDesktop documentation.
There may be
situations where you want to configure the same setting differently in Group
Policy and the .ini file, for example when you want to activate default logging
with a Group Policy setting but activate verbose logging using the .ini file on
a computer that you use for troubleshooting.
