When using Microsoft User Profile Disks within XenApp/XenDesktop environment you always ending up creating some scripts to enable this.
Trond created a nice article howto configure this: https://xenappblog.com/2016/user-profile-disk-citrix/
But I want a bit more flexiblity to the configuation without changing the startup script every time.
I’ve created a Group Policy Template to do the following:
- Enable / Disable User Profile Disks;
- Configure the file share location;
- Configure the XML Configuration file name and location.
Copy the two files to the correct locations (More info) and give it a try 😉
Within the ZIP file there is also a UvhdRoamingPolicy.xml file. This file should be placed in C:\Windows\RemotePackages\RDFarm on each machine where UPD’s are being used. You can configure this within the same GPO in the Preferences section.

When you mention:
This file should be placed in C:\Windows\RemotePackages\RDFarm on each machine where UPD’s are being used.
Does it mean each session host/XenApp server in the collection?

Yes you are correct. On every XenApp/Session host server in the farm/Site ;). That is why it is easier to add the files in the same GPO in the Preferences section.

You can find them here: Computer Configuration –> Policies –> Administrative Templates –> Microsoft User Profile Disks

i have copied across the templates but they are not visible when I launch the GPMC & browse to the location suggested.
Am I missing a trick here or is it possible for you email me the templates.
