Enable Profile Management

By default, to facilitate deployment, Profile Management does not process logons or logoffs. Enable Profile Management only after carrying out all other setup tasks and testing how Citrix user profiles perform in your environment.

To enable Profile Management using Group Policy, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor.
  2. Under Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates: Policy definitions (ADMX files) > Citrix Components > Profile Management, double-click the Enable Profile management policy.
  3. Select Enabled.

You can also enable Profile Management using the UPMPolicyDefaults_all.ini file. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. On the machine where Profile Management is installed, navigate to C:\Program Files\Citrix\User Profile Manager\UPMPolicyDefaults.ini.
  2. Open UPMPolicyDefaults.ini using Notepad.
  3. Edit the configurations to reflect your specifics.

If this setting is not configured in Group Policy, the value from the .ini file is used. If this setting is not configured in Group Policy or in the .ini file, Profile Management does not process Windows user profiles in any way.

You can also choose to enable Profile Management using:

  • Citrix Studio. For instructions on enabling Profile Management using Citrix Studio, see Knowledge Center article CTX222893.
  • Workspace Experience Management (WEM). For instructions on enabling Profile Management using WEM, see Knowledge Center article CTX229258.

For your changes to take effect, run the gpupdate /force command from the command prompt as documented at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490983.aspx.
