Profile Settings (Backend) not carrying forward.

Recommended Posts

To be short, I've setup a pretty restricted profile on the VM for this image. Essentially the user can login and open 3 programs on the desktop and that is it. Unfortunately, when I capture the image and deploy it to the new computer, all of those restrictions are lost.  I'm fairly new to this realm, so I'm probably missing something super simple, but any ideas on what I need to do to make sure the user can't access any settings or preferences I had set on the VM?

Hi there,

It's likely that whatever restrictions you're applying are not surviving the Sysprep process. Since Sysprep is a mandatory part of deployment, there's unfortunately not a lot we can do about this. 

The recommended method for this sort of thing would be to apply the restrictions to the endpoints instead - this way, you can be sure that they are being applied to the current computer, current account, current SID, etc. Depending on what restrictions you're looking to impose, you may want to look at using Group Policy on your domain. 

Please feel free to reach out to support@smartdeploy.com if you have any questions.
