Overview

Introduction

The Install and Configure User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) module provides you with the instruction and server hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Enable System Requirements for UE-V
  • Deploy UE-V Storage Locations
  • Deploy UE-V Software Components
  • Test UE-V Client Settings

Exercise 1 - Enable System Requirements for UE-V

User Environment Virtualization (UE-V) is a technology that provides a consistent Windows environment on a desktop, laptop and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) sessions. UE-V is one of the components in the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) that administrators can utilize to manage a roaming desktop environment for end-users in a corporate network.

MDOP software is available for Microsoft Partners only through paid software subscription service.

In this exercise, you will enable the system requirements for setting up UE-V in a Windows Active Directory domain.

Exercise 2 - Deploy UE-V Storage Locations

UE-V requires the Settings Store. This is a shared folder that contains applications and Windows settings. In this exercise, you will deploy the settings location, a shared folder where settings will be stored in a settings package file.

Exercise 3 - Deploy UE-V Software Components

After creating the shared folders that will be used as storage for UE-V settings, you will now install the following UE-V software components:

  1. UE-V Agent - this software is installed on managed client computers. This agent monitors changes in the applications installed on user computers and synchronize these changes to the settings store.
  2. UE-V Settings Location Template - this is a file that defines locations of registry settings that UE-V use to synchronize with the settings store.
  3. UE-V Generator - this software installed on the server captures application settings and locations. It generates the XML-based settings location template that the UE-V agent reads.

Exercise 4 - Test UE-V Client Settings

After setting up the system requirements, created the shared folders for UE-V, and installed UE-V software components, you will now verify if the UE-V settings are enforced on the Windows clients.
