To edit URL redirection information in a deployed MED-V workspace, we recommend that you update the system registry by using Group Policy. Although we do not recommend it, you can also rebuild and redeploy the MED-V workspace with the updated URL redirection information.

The registry key is usually located at:


The following multi-string value must be present: RedirectUrls

The value data for RedirectUrls is a list of all of the URLs that you specified for redirection when you built the MED-V workspace package by using the MED-V Workspace Packager. For more information, see Create a MED-V Workspace Package.

You can add and remove URL redirection information by performing one of the following tasks:

To update URL Redirection information by using Group Policy

  1. Edit the registry key multi-string value that is named RedirectUrls. This value is typically located at:


    If you are adding URLs to the registry key, enter them one per line, as was required when you built the MED-V workspace package. For more information, see Create a MED-V Workspace Package.

  2. Deploy the updated registry key by using Group Policy. For more information about how to use Group Policy, see Group Policy Software Installation (

This method of editing URL redirection information is a MED-V best practice.

To rebuild the MED-V workspace by using an updated URL text file

  • Another method of adding and removing URLs from the redirection list is to update the URL redirection text file and then use it to build a new MED-V workspace. You can then redeploy the MED-V workspace as before, by using your standard process of deployment, such as an ESD system.

    We do not recommend this method of editing URL redirection information. In addition, any time that you redeploy the MED-V workspace back out to your enterprise, first time setup must run again, and any data saved in the virtual machine is lost.
