XenApp 6.0 Delivery Console Policies

In XenAPP 6 is there a way I can make a copy / clone of an existing Delivery Console Policy so I can use it as a base for a new policy?

compdigit44 did you mean WorkerGroup?
CarlWebster - I think he does

Compdigit44 - I'm currently working on an environment that does just that (I didn't build it).  I've been a believer of only segment out your applications to different servers when it is technically required and use good load evaluators.  

I would consider these as good reasons to separate (silo) applications (this is not an exhaustive list, but is the most common).
1. DLL Conflicts - If you have multiple installs that require completely different DLL versions and streaming/isolation isn't a good option.
2. Need multiple installs of the application, but the app doesn't allow it
3. Apps with *heavy* resource needs - basically if the app can easily bog down an entire server.. keeping it separate spares your desktop users the headache.
4. Apps with security/functionality wholes that expose parts parts of the system that shouldn't be (unusual, but it does happen).
5. Different domains for users

So -- in short, I try not to segment them without a good cause.  To me, it causes more profile issues, compatibility issues, delays for the users, etc.  

Carl WebsterCommented:
and with application silos, you can't use session sharing.
