FlexEngine (-OfflineImport) Parameter

Jump to solution

pastedImage_1.png

Are most people using the "Run FlexEngine as Group Policy client-side extension" GPO setting instead of running FlexEngine as a Logon script?

Is it necessary to use the (-OfflineImport) parameter in the Logoff script section? They reference the SyncTool in the screenshot above, but I'm not clear on whether (-OfflineImport) should be run regardless to ensure that cached credentials never cause issues with the client-side extension section of the GPO.

In most of the scenarios 'Run flexengine as GP client side extension' is preferred over running it as 'logon script'.By running FlexEngine as Group Policy Extension, settings that User Environment Manager manages are applied earlier during the logon phase rather than when running FlexEngine from a logon script.It also works better while handling windows Multilanguage User Interface.

However in special scenarios, you can run DEM as a logon script.

-OfflineImport parameter is OPTIONAL parameter when you run DEM through logon script instead of 'group policy client side extension'. This parameter is required only if your computers goes offline.

i read that part in docs.vmware

Exactly how?  In the script that will run on login gpo

Document says to run C:\Program Files\Immidio\Flex Profiles\FlexEngine.exe"

and in the GPO put the script parament -r

But the document also says, like you said, to run on login the argument -offlineimport

exactly how?

Do we put on the script to run on logon the commands are...

"-offlineimport

C:\Program Files\Immidio\Flex Profiles\FlexEngine.exe"

 

and this is run with parameter -r

?

Thank you in advance
