Managing Windows Virtual Desktops with Microsoft Endpoint Manager

Unsurprisingly, I have spent a lot of time recently deploying WVD solutions. In this blog post I want to highlight the MEM features that you can use to manage these desktops, especially in regard to Windows 10 multi-session. At the time of writing Configuration Manager 2006 in the latest production version.

For performance reasons ConfigMgr disables user policies on Windows 10 multi-session devices. This only happens with new client installations (1906 and later). If you upgraded the client from a previous version (pre 1906) then user policies will still be enabled. There may, of course, be a situation where you want to enable user policies and will accept any performance hit.


Open the Client Policy tab of Client Settings and choose "Enable user policy for multiple user sessions"


In versions 2006 and later, Windows 10 multi-session is now available in the list of supported versions for requirement rules. This is very useful when targeting FSLogix installations and registry settings.

If you previously selected the top-level Windows 10 platform, this action automatically selected all child platforms. The new platform isn't automatically selected. If you want to add Windows 10 multi-session, manually select it in the list.

Notes:
  • Currently Intune does not support Windows 10 multi-session but development work is actively being carried out.
  • Co-management is not supported on a client running Windows 10 multi-session.

These are exciting new MEM features with more to come. I hope this helps.

Until next time.......
