How to prepare your file store for profile VHD storage

Profile VHDs are usually stored across the network on a file server. FSLogix Apps can create a new user’s profile VHD automatically in the file store but in order to do this the user has to be able to write to the file store, however you don’t want all users having access to all the other user’s profile VHDs. In order to do this you may wish to set the permissions on the file share where the profiles will be stored as follows:

 

User AccountFolderPermissions
UsersThis Directory OnlyModify
Creator/OwnerSub-Directories and Files OnlyModify
Administrator (Optional)This Directory, Sub-Directories, and FilesFull Control

 

   

Note

For new users no administrative account is required. Administrators are only necessary for custom profile manipulation including actions like:

  • Migrating existing user's profiles - a Powershell script for migrating existing user profiles is available upon request
  • Profile backup and restore
  • custom file retrieval from within a user's profile
Warning

In Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 environments, the following patch from Microsoft must be applied in order for the FSLogix Profiles product to work properly: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2614892

Note

The VHDX container format was introduced in Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Therefore, FSLogix containers in the VHDX format are only supported in these (and later) OS environments.
