View Persona Gotcha’s

Just a few View Persona Gotcha’s for when designing your solutions.

  1. View Persona requires a SMB share.
  2. You cannot use View Persona with desktops that run in local mode.
  3. A user cannot access the same profile if the user switches between desktops that have XP user profiles and Win 7+ user profiles. Redirected folders can be shared between XP and Win 7+ profiles.
  4. Only one desktop can use the profile at once.
  5. View Persona needs View Premier license
  6. XP desktops must have UPHClean installed


  1. Good post but don’t forget about the AV exclusion when using persona. It can be configured in the persona GPO.
