We have been testing out the new anniversary update on Windows 10. For the most part it works good, except that roaming profiles does not work properly. After some testing it seems that Persona Management does not support the new V6 profiles in 1607. Does anyone have any other experience, or do someone have an eta on a new version form VMware?
Persona management is syncing files, but it is syncing to the "username.domain".V5 folder on the fileserver, and prevents Windows from creating the V6 folder. Thus you get a temporary profile on the vm (with files on desktop etc synced from V5 folder),
UEM - no way, we're on Standard edition.
The answer from VMware Support: PM support for Windows 10 1607 will be included in 7.0.3 version, planned to release in half of December.
Thank you all for your response.
Technically Persona doesn't touch low level SMB protocol directly.
As far as the destination of profile repository doesn't change in the runtime then it should work fine.
We don't explicitly say support deduplication but if you find an issue please raise support ticket to your support channel.
AFIAK there where problems with corrupted profiles in the past:
I also opened a SR 15669323105, in 2015and the official answer was that 2012 + Dedup was not supported. I'm wondering if this has changed now since I can't find anything in the official documentation:
Persona repository is not supported on a Server 2012 deduplicated system as yet. This feature is being developed for future releases.
If you see our KB "Persona Managment fails to sync user data to the persona profile in VMware View (2085366) | VMware ...", Persona supports Windows 2012 from version 6.0.2.
As far as I understand, dedup is a backend process of Windows 2012 but it still exposes single point to the external, which means if you access IP 188.8.131.52 then it never changes.
Persona will not support repository server if it has an agent in the desktop and explicitly changes the share location dynamically. Usually we see in some of Distributed File System (DFS) configuration.
hi there, is there anything planned to bring an update for Version 6.2.3?
Our Client ist running 6.2.3 and need also support for Windows 10 1607 with PersonaManagement and V6 profiles. I created a SR 17336784501
thanks and best regards
