Enabling Verbose Mode for ADMX Logging (NoAD Mode) – VMware UEM 9.1

14 Feb

If you using VMware UEM for applying ADMX-based Setting and want detailed verbose logs on ADMX then then you will have to add an additional advanced settings in the NoAD.xml file.

Background: We were applying an ADMX setting (Desktop Background Wallpaper) and it wasn’t applying on the virtual desktop. The informational logging was not sufficient in deriving the root cause of the issue. Why the AMDX setting was getting skipped? After enabling the verbose logging it started logging additional information that was helpful in arriving to a conclusion.

Solution (NoAD.xml)
Located under \\FileShare\General\FlexRepository\NoAD subfolder.

Setting

XML Attribute

Enable verbose logging for ADMX-based settings, application blocking, and Horizon policiesAdmxLogging=”1″

Set to 1 to configure

After enabling the setting you will see an additional file called FlexEngine-ADMX.log in the logs folder which will capture all the verbose logging.
