FSLogix Settings and Configuration

FSLogix Settings and Configuration

The FSLogix profile container is based on two components:

Nerdio Manager automatically installs the FSLogix application, by default, when a new session host VM is created, or an existing one is re-imaged. This is the most common use case.

To set Nerdio Manager to install the FSLogix application automatically:

  1. Navigate to Settings Integrations.

  2. In the FSLogix Profiles storage tile, add, change, and remove the profiles as needed.

    Notes: Be sure to select the following options for FSLogix profiles linked to hybrid host pools.

    • Use Cloud Cache: Select this option to enable FSLogix Cloud Cache in the host pools, and the session hosts within those host pools, that use this FSLogix profile.

    • Use Azure page blobs: Select this option to use storage account blob containers to store users profiles. These containers are accessed using storage account access keys.

  3. Select one profile as the default.


  • If you set the Use FSLogix Profiles option to Off, the FSLogix app is installed automatically when new hosts are created or re-imaged.

  • Each host pool's FSLogix settings can be customized.

  • FSLogix is not installed on the desktop image.

  • The FSLogix registry settings are not set on the desktop image.

  • No environment has GPO to control the FSLogix configuration.

To manage FSLogix installation and configuration manually:

  1. Locate the host pool you wish to change.

  2. From the action menu, select Properties > FSLogix.

  3. Toggle Use FSLogix profiles to Off.

  4. Select Save & close.

  5. The application must be installed on the desktop image.

  6. The configuration must be applied either via the registry on the desktop image or with a GPO.

To change the FSLogix registry options:

  1. Locate the host pool you wish to change.

  2. From the action menu, select Properties > FSLogix.

  3. Make the changes to the FSLogix registry options.


    • You can add DWORD values in the format: "ValueName":dword:ValueData (example: "ProfileType"=dword:00000003).

    • You can add string values in the format: "ValueName":"ValueData" (example: "VolumeType":"vhdx").

  4. Once you have entered all the desired information, select Save or Save & close.

Note: These values are added under the HKLM\SOFTWARE\FSLogix\Profiles key. See the above link for Microsoft documentation on the FSLogix profile container registry reference.
