Enable logon exclusion check

The Enable Logon exclusion check feature controls what Profile Management does if a profile in the user store contains excluded files and folders when a user logs on. By default, the feature is disabled.

To use this feature, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor.
  2. Under Policies > Administrative Templates: Policy definitions (ADM) > Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) > Citrix > Profile Management > File system, double-click the Logon Exclusion Check policy.
  3. Select Enabled.
  4. Select an option from the dropdown. By default, Delete excluded files or folders is selected.
  5. Click OK.

This feature provides the following three options:

  • Delete excluded files or folders. Deletes the excluded files and folders from the user store when a user logs on.
  • Ignore excluded files or folders. Ignores the excluded files and folders from the user store when a user logs on.
  • Synchronize excluded files or folders. Synchronizes the excluded files and folders from the user store to a local profile when a user logs on.

Warning:

If you select Delete excluded files or folders, Profile Management deletes your excluded files and folders from the user store permanently. If you include the excluded files and folders again, Profile Management still deletes them from the cached local profile when you log on.

For your changes to take effect, run the gpupdate /force command from the command prompt. You must log off and log back on. For more information about the gpupdate /force command, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490983.aspx.

If the Enable logon exclusion check setting is not configured in Group Policy objects, the value from the .ini file is used. If this setting is not configured anywhere, it is disabled by default.

To enable logon exclusion check using the .ini file, 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 EnableLogonExclusionCheck item in the [General Settings] section.
  3. Set a value for the EnableLogonExclusionCheck item as follows:
    • To ignore the excluded files and folders specified in the exclusion list from the user store, set the value to 1; for example, EnableLogonExclusionCheck=1.
    • To delete the excluded files and folders specified in the exclusion list from the user store, set the value to 2; for example, EnableLogonExclusionCheck=2.
    • To disable the check, set the value to 0; for example, EnableLogonExclusionCheck=0.
  4. Save and close the Profile Management .ini file.
  5. Run the gpupdate /force command to make your changes take effect.
