Set path for TS Roaming Profiles


G

Guest

For W2K3 TS, setting this GPO setting makes roaming profiles a breeze.

Unfortunately, this setting does help in W2K TS.

Without having to set a profile path in each User's account settings, does
anyone have another solution?

I have up to 1,000 Users (out of 30,000) spread across several domains
worldwide which need access to a CITRIX Server Farm. The easiest solution
would be to implement this GPO setting but our servers are only W2K TS's.

Any help appreciated.

I promised a while back that I would post here when I had more
information. We have released a hotfix which is a design change
request that has been in the works for a very long time. This
design change back ports the Terminal Services profile and
Terminal Services home directory group policy setting to Windows
2000.


To obtain this fix call Microsoft support and ask for the fix for
KB 843261. The article is in the works and will be published in
the next several weeks.

Thanks,
