TS and romaing profile


Martin H

Hi, Im having a TS w2k3.
Most of my clients have WinXp on their computer and roaming profile.
Is it a BAD idea to have the same roaming profile when they run TS?
Some of my clients have problem when Im running this - for exampel diffault
printer changes and the security settings in IE.
What is the best solluiton?
Please let my know what you think!

Yes, using the same roaming profile for their workstation logon and
their TS logon is normally not a good idea, for the reasons you have
mentioned. Define a TS specific roaming profile in their account
setup to avoid this kind of problems.

Why when I specifiy the path in TS Profile it get ignored and load my
default profile?

Assuming you run 2003 TS, check if this helps:

829109 - Terminal Server Profile Path Is Ignored If the User Who
Is Logging On Does Not Have Query Information Permissions on the
RDP-TCP Connection

833409 - The roaming profile is not loaded after the user uses
Terminal Services to log on to Windows Server 2003

Phone Microsoft Support to get these hotfixes. If you ask for a
specific hotfix and don't ask other support questions during the
call, it won't cost you any money and you'll get it within
