Administering UE-V 2.0
Updated: December 2, 2013
Applies To: User Experience Virtualization 2.0
After you have deployed Microsoft User Experience Virtualization (UE-V) 2.0, you must be able to perform various ongoing administrative tasks. These post-installation tasks are described in the following sections.
Managing UE-V 2.0 resources
In the course of the UE-V lifecycle, you have to manage the configuration of the UE-V Agent and also manage storage locations for resources such as settings package files. You might have to perform other tasks, for example, restore a user’s settings to their original state from before UE-V was installed to recover lost settings. The following topics provide guidance for managing UE-V resources.
Changing the frequency of UE-V 2.0 scheduled tasks
You can configure the scheduled tasks that manage when UE-V checks for new or updated settings or for updated custom settings location templates in the settings template catalog.
Restoring application and Windows settings that are synchronized with UE-V 2.0
Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Windows PowerShell features of UE-V provide the ability to restore settings packages. By using WMI and Windows PowerShell commands, you can restore application settings and Windows settings to the settings values that were on the computer the first time that the application was started after the UE-V Agent was started.
Configuring UE-V by using Group Policy Objects
You can use Group Policy Objects to modify the settings that define how UE-V synchronizes settings on computers.
Migrating UE-V Settings Packages
You can relocate the user settings packages either when they migrate to a new server or for backup purposes.
Using UE-V 2 with Application Virtualization applications
You can use UE-V with Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) to share settings between virtual applications and installed applications across multiple computers.
Configuring UE-V 2.0 with System Center Configuration Manager 2012
You can use System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to manage the UE-V Agent by using the UE-V 2.0 Configuration Pack.
Configuring the Company Settings Center for UE-V 2.0
You can configure the Company Settings Center that is installed by using the UE-V Agent to define how users interact with UE-V.
