VMware UEM – Management Console Configuration

Welcome to my VMware User Environment Manager series, how I setup “UEM” in my LAB. In this session I will describe how I did the UEM Management Console configuration-phase.

I log into the file server where I installed the UEM Management Console. At first launch of the UEM Management Console, I’m met with dialog box asking me for the location of the “UEM Configuration Share”. In my LAB this will be the share I created in DFS: \\ad.admin.frelab.net\dfs\UEM\UemConfig



I now start Easy Start


I choose Office 2013 & 2016


Next I will download some extra Config Templates


I enter my login-credentials to MyVmware


I choose a couple of Configuration Templates, Save and Close


Next I will create a configuration file for Windows 10 Start Menu Settings


I click “Create Config File” button, choose “Use a Windows Common Setting”



I enter in a somewhat descriptive name and title


We can now configure this from the menu on the left


As far as this LAB is concerned, I won’t go into a Deep-Dive covering all the details about configuring different aspect of UEM, but I will refer to VMware’s own documentation about configuring the UEM Management Console here: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-User-Environment-Manager/index.html
