Problem: Can you have multiple .ini file configurations for larger environments and what is the difference between that and Filter Management?
If you have multiple INI files in the Profile Unity folder:
Prior to version 4.7 multiple INI files would break the rsynch process which drives our "Synch Option" on Folder Re-direction as well our ability to deliver local-cached mode ThinApps to a desktop. In addition, there have been reports of ThinApp delivery issues when multiple ini files are in place priorto 4.7.1. This is fixed in the 4.7.1 release.
It should be noted that if there are multiple ini files and the user is entitled to execute them, they are executed in alphabetical order except for default.ini. Default is executed first and then all the other files inalphabetical order.
Multiple ini files can be useful in larger environments or in any environment where there are large groups of users that require their ProfileUnity configuration to have a large amount of differences (e.g. different portability and different save paths, different provisioning tasks altogether) or in environments where there could be multiple admins making configurations.
Filter Management gives you the ability to make finer grain adjustments within a singular ini file. For example, all users have their portability settings saved to their home drive, but we want to provision different printers or drives for different departments. In those cases, filter management may be the best approach
