Moving from Persona Management to FSLogix Profile Containers

Jump to solution

Does anyone have any experience attempting this? Currently using personas with Windows 7 VMs, and working on moving everything to Windows 10. Have issues we can't get around with personas and win10, so we've been testing FSLogix profiles and it fixes all those issues. Was hoping someone's found an easy way to sync the persona into the FSLogix Profile container, as that would save us a lot of time working with users to manually move all their stuff over. VMWare support has already suggested DEM has the solution to the persona issue, but that's not in the budget anytime soon.

If it matters:

We used that script and adapted it for our Persona folders:

I changed the script a bit, I commented on this blog post, we had problems about the ownership/permissions inside the VHD/VDHX.
