Description

Set the criteria to identify folders that should not be synchronized when mobile users log in and log out. These group policies allow you to specify a string that identifies files and folders to skip during synchronization at login and logout:

  • Use the Skip items that start with policy to skip items that start with the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items that end with policy to skip items that end with the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose name contains policy to skip items that contain the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose name is policy to skip items that exactly match the specified string.

    The string should not contain the slash (/) character.

  • Use the Skip items whose full path is policy to skip all items in the specified directory.

    For example, if you specify ~/Library, no items in ~/Library directory will be synchronized. Note that this policy applies to all items in the specified directory, but not to items in subdirectories. To skip items in subdirectories, either explicitly add the subdirectories; for example:

    ~/Library/Caches, ~/Library/Logs

    or use the next policy, Skip items whose partial path matches, which will skip items in any directory whose path includes the specified string.

  • Use the Skip items whose partial path matches policy to skip items with a partial path that matches the specified string. For example,

    ~/Library

    skips items in ~/Library and in all its subdirectories; or:

    ~/Caches

    skips items in ~/Library/Caches, ~/Users/jrich/Caches, and so on.

If you enable any of these group policies, click Add and type a string, for example Users or /Users,~/Library, then click OK.

These policies require the Enable/disable login & logout synchronization rules policy to be enabled.

Note:   When the Access Manager console is running on Windows 2000 SP4 or Windows 2003, this policy cannot be set to disabled. This problem is corrected if Service Pack 1 or later is applied to the computer on which the Access Manager console is running.

Once any of these policies are enabled, they take effect when users log out and log back in.
