Citrix Profile Management

The best use case for Citrix User Profile Management (UPM) is that it's included with many Citrix offerings. It's well worth trying to use instead of standard Microsoft roaming profiles to see if it fits your environments.

Pros

Citrix Profile Management

  • UPM does extend the features of Microsoft roaming profiles. It gives you the ability to load ADM files and create group policies to set settings.
  • With UPM you are able to include or exclude files and folders in a user's profile.
  • There are some tie ins between UPM and Citrix Director to give administrators the ability to quickly see the size of the user's profile.

Cons

Citrix Profile Management

  • Since UPM manages Microsoft roaming profiles you still face profile size challenges. You can use the exclude feature but it can be a bit limiting.
  • Because of size concerns this may not be the best choice for international deployments if you intend to roam settings across multiple environments.
  • Troubleshooting UPM can be a bit difficult at times. There are some built in logging features but those are best reviewed by Citrix.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix Profile Management

We decided to use Citrix UPM because it was included in our XenDesktop purchase. There was no additional cost for us to do so. It extends the features of Microsoft Roaming Profiles.

Return on Investment

Citrix Profile Management

  • By far the best ROI for using UPM is that it's included with many Citrix offerings.
  • The only negative ROI might be time spent setting up UPM then deciding to change solutions.
