Persona Management not working when configured as per the View 5.0 Administration Guide (2008377)

  • 6 Ratings


  • Persona Management does not work as specified in the Configure a User Profile Repository section of the VMware View Administration Guide.
  • View Personas of non-administrative users are not being synchronized correctly.


View Personas require additional permissions beyond those needed for Windows Roaming Profiles. These extra permissions are not detailed in the View 5.0 Administration Guide.


Users with a View Persona profile on the remote repository must have these permissions on the parent folder:
  • List Folder/Read Data
  • Create Folders/Append Data
  • Read Attributes

Note: The user must also be owner of their profile folder. If this folder is created by View when the user logs in, that permission is set by default.  If you are manually creating the folder on the persona repository, you have to give the user ownership.
