Configure Site defaults and hosts for FSLogix

To configure FSLogix:

  1. Do one of the following:

    • To configure Site defaults, navigate to Infrastructure > Host pools > RD Session Hosts > Properties > Site defaults > User Profile.

    • To configure host pools, navigate to Infrastructure > Host pools > <Host pool name> > Properties > User Profile.

    • To configure individual hosts, navigate to Infrastructure > RD Session Hosts > <Host name> > Properties > User Profile.

  2. If you want to use Profile Containers, go to User Profile > FSLogix - Profile Containers:

    • Users and Groups: Specify include and exclude user and group lists. By default, Everyone is added to the FSLogix profile include list. If you want some user profiles remain local, you can add those users to the exclude list. Users and group can exist in both lists but exclude takes priority.

    • Folders: Specify include and exclude lists for folders. You can select from common folders or you can specify your own. Please note that folders must reside in user profile path.

    • Disks: Specify the settings of the profile disk. Location type: Select a location type for profile disks (SMB Location or Cloud Cache) and then specify one or more locations. Location of profile disks: Location(s) of profile disks. These are the locations of VHD(X) files (the VHDLocations setting in the registry as specified in the FSLogix documentation). Profile disk format: Select from VHD or VHDX according to your requirements. VHDX is a newer format and has more features. Allocation type: Select Dynamic or Full. This setting is used in conjunction with the Default size setting (see below) to manage the size of a profile. Dynamic causes the profile container to use the minimum space on disk, regardless of the allocated Default size. As a user profile is filled with more data, the amount of data on disk will grow up to the size specified in Default size, but will never exceed it. Default size: Specifies the size of newly created VHD(X) in megabytes.

    • Advanced: This tab allows you to modify advanced FSLogix registry settings. By default, the settings are disabled. To enable a setting, select the checkbox in front of its name. A description for each setting is provided in the RAS console. For further information regarding FSLogix Profile Containers configurations, visit
