Terminal services profile

Guest

Hello !

I've got a question concerning user profiles.
All users logging onto TS has roaming profiles located on network server.
also on TS machine the settings are that windows use mobile profile not a
local copy.

and the problem is that some users after logon works on local copy of the
profile
(local desktop, local Start Menu and so on ...)
some works on remote profile.

What makes that some works on local and some on mobile profile ?
from what it depends ?

The settings are the same at least it should be.

This would happen if the users desktop were redirected to another location,
i.e. Network Location. These redirections are set in Group Policy.

Yes there was a time that desktop, Start Menu, Application Data and My
Documents Folders were redirected but now it aren't except My Documents,
becouse I've changed the GPO.

What should I do now if I want to have them local again ?

Anyway Thanks for response.

Yes're right but I have a case that when user logon in fact he work on his
network profile becouse for example when he creates a desktop icon it's being
created on the network profile not on the local profile, another example:
when he double click on the strat menu -> Programs he see his start menu ->
programs folder on the network.

I would like not to behave like this and when someone create a icon, create
it on the local profile desktop not on the profile which really happen now.

Do You know how to alter this behaviour ?

I believe there is a checkbox in the GPO setting to leave items in their
redirected location even if the policy is removed, yes?

Yes that's true and I think I did it this way so now they stay in redirected
location,
but is there a way to redirect them back ?

I'm thinking maybe to change GPO again and redirect them once again but this
time
mark checkbox with move them into original location when policy is removed,
but there is one problem becouse their original location now is network,
so what will happen If I redirect them to local location for example:

\\server\drive\documents and settings\%username%

Do You think it will work ?

Unsure, but I hope you'll let me know. I've never had this happen before.
You could just backup the profile, delete both the local & network copy, then
logon to dreate a new profile for the user and copy items back from the
original that they need.

For IE, you must export cookies using IE, then use IE tom import them to
work in a different profile.

Hello.

Ok. I've succesfully redirected profile folders to local machineby using
folder redirection setting of GPO, but I used a different path, the one I
didn't expect to work:

E:\documents and settings\%username%\folder

I've tried many different ideas but only this works fine

Thanks for Your time.

Bye

Suder,

I have a question about, user access control.
I would like know if is there one way to control separately, the maximum of
conexions over two differents applications in only one server. For example,
for one application I would like to have at max 5 users conected simultanealy
and to other application 10.

is there some way to make this control works?

Note that I have changed the subject line, since this has nothing
to do with the original thread.

There's no native way to do this, as far as I know, but there are
a couple of ways you can achieve this:

* create a share for each application, and run the aplication from
the UNC path (even if the share is created locally on the Terminal
Server), like \\server\app_share\my_app.exe. You can set a limit
on the number of connections to the share.

* use a script that checks the number of instances of the
application that are running on the server:
