Hi

I want to setup 100 hosted share desktops on a xenapp environment.
Since all are sharing same xenapp vm I.e it's like multiple people using same resource..can my user save a text file or shortcut on desktop..infact I want this to get saved in his profile..and ill set a limit of quota for his profile and will educate users that big files exceeding quota they should store in network drive.

Want to know if this is possible in hosted shared desktop delivery model

Sure! This is possible; this is in fact the norm! When the user logs in, even on a terminal services (Remote Desktop), he sees the documents, desktop and application data of his own profile - no matter how many people are concurrently using the server.

Moreover, as you are concerned about profile loading and performance of logging in, you can make use of folder redirection to the Documents and Desktop folder. This means the actual folders of the user will be on a file share server but they do not get loaded while the user logs in - what happens instead is that the system will point to them!

When the user clicks on Log off, it will not log off the server for all the connected users. It will just log off the user who carried out the action and kill his session. However, if you still want to have it done you could do it through Group Policy:

Navigate through User Config ->Admin Template->System->Logon/Logoff and select Remove Logoff

and

Navigate through User Config->Admin Template->Start Menu and Taskbar and select Remove Logoff on the Start Menu

Please note, you could equally have this done for other buttons like Sleep, Shut Down, Restart, Hibernate through the same location in GPO. As a matter of fact, it is more important to restrict access to these buttons than to restrict it on the Log off.
