FSLogix Profile Container Configuration


Step by step how-to in Citrix Environment

  1. Download FSLOGIX components to your target device (VDA/master image)


  1. Once downloaded, you`ll need to import admx/adml files in your sysvol policy definitions repository

Full path:


Relative path:


  1. Create a share to host your profile containers
  • Simply create a folder and share it with everyone somewhere on a server in your domain (leave default for testing purposes)
  • You will need this later when configuring profile container policy

  1. Install the fslogix agent and rule app editor on your target device (master image or VDA)
  • In this example I am using a ws2k19 server x64
  • We will need the rule app editor later for application masking (see app masking article)

  1. Once installed we can see them in the programs and features window

  1. There are 4 local security groups created on the VDA after fslogix app installation. These basically include/exclude users to which profile container and outlook data container creation will apply

  • Make sure you populate them with your preferred membership be it user objects or security group objects.
  • For my testing I included „everyone” group and excluded „domain admins”. This means that everyone will be getting a profile container with the exception of domain admins.

  1. Now that we are done with agent installation, we can move on to the GPO configuration part.
  • Create GPO object on your GPMC console and link it to your VDA OU.

  • As far as settings go, you would normally just need to enable FSLOGIX functionality, define a profile container size and location where it is stored. Rest of the settings are optional and need research to see what applies for you.
  • For our testing purposes, as an example, I have configured the following settings:

  • As you can see, we specified the share path we have created at step 3 and we also have the script defined for Fslogix rules copy. We will talk more about this once we get to that part and why this is needed.
  1. This is it. Reboot your VDA or provision your golden image to your target devices and test by logging on with a user that is allowed to use fslogix profile containers (see step 6 referring to which users/group objects are set within the local fslogix include group).
  • Once you have rebooted, you will see a profile container created on the share you created earlier at step 3 and defined it in policy on step 7. Should look like this
