Changing redirected shell folder location to a new redirected directory using Profile Unity (with file exclusions)



This is an instructional KB that does not have symptoms.

This is a 2-step process. First step is copying the content to a new location, and second step changes the redirection path (therefore scheduling some down time is required).


1. On VDI non-persistent the rule for Desktop redirection supposed to look similar to the below image.

It is No change (for non-persistent desktops)


2. You need to add another rule that will copy the content to a designated folder. You can include exclusions.

NOTE: "Only Redirect Local Shell Folders" MUST be unchecked.



3. Once all users have these folders synced to new location (and that should happen after first logon with a new updated INI file you have to disable the original rule.


4. At the same time you will need to edit your new rule (the one showing a new redirected location) to “no change”.


5. NOTE: after sync you will likely see a sync.log folder showing. Please delete or run a create a scrip to delete the file.
