To enable logon exclusion check

May 22, 2017

As of version 5.7, Profile Management offers logon exclusion check. With this feature, Profile Management can omit items from synchronization when a user logs on.

When logon exclusion check is enabled, Profile Management does not synchronize the files and folders (registry entries not included) specified in the logon exclusion list from the user store to the local profile when a user logs on. By default, logon exclusion check is disabled.

Version 5.8 and later

To enable logon exclusion check, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Profile Management .ini file. For more information about the .ini file, see About the Profile management .ini file.
  2. Add the LogonExclusionCheck item in the [General Settings] section.
  3. To ignore files and folders specified in the exclusion list from the user store, set the value to 1.
    To delete files and folders specified in the exclusion list from the user store, set the value to 2.
    To disable the check, set the value to 0. 
    LogonExclusionCheck=1
    LogonExclusionCheck=2
    LogonExclusionCheck=0
  4. Save and close the Profile Management .ini file.

Warning: Setting logon exclusion check to “2” deletes your excluded files and folders from the user store permanently. When you include the excluded files and folders again, these files and folders are deleted from the cached local profile when you log on.

Version 5.7

To enable logon exclusion check, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the Profile Management .ini file.
  2. Add the EnableLogonExclusionCheck item in the [General Settings] section.
  3. To enable logon exclusion check, set the value to 1.
    To disable the check, set the value to 0. 
    EnableLogonExclusionCheck=1
    EnableLogonExclusionCheck=0
  4. Save and close the Profile Management .ini file.
