User profile editor

Hello Dear,


How do you access the user profile editor? I was trying to follow the instructions as described by the Knowledge base but got stuck halfway through...


Please help....


On occasions, it may be necessary for an administrator to copy a defined User Profile to a number of Users, which will present each of them with an identical initial profile for their first logon, which they will then be able to modify as required.

This article shows you how to copy such a profile. One difficulty of this procedure is that it is not obvious, in the Copy To dialog box (under My Computer, Control Panel, System, User Profiles), what the correct entry for Copy Profile To should be for Roaming User Profiles. This article also covers that question.



MORE INFORMATION


To create a Roaming Profile:
1.In Control Panel System, click User Profiles and select an existing User Profile. 2.Change the type of profile by clicking Change Type. This will give the user the choice of selecting a Local or Roaming Profile.


In order to copy an existing User Profile to another User, so that it becomes a Roaming User Profile for the user who will receive a copy of the profile, follow the procedure below:
1.In Control panel, double-click the System icon. 2.Click the User Profiles tab. 3.Select either an existing Local or Roaming Profile which you wish to copy. 4.Click the Copy To button 5.Under Copy profile to specify a UNC path to the users profile directory, for example:



       \\ServerName\ShareName\User'sProfileDirectory

What is should say is select the user policy editor and create a default policy for all users on the domain.

 In NT 3.51 you could log in as a user, set up your desktop the way you wanted, log out.  This created a profile that you could copy to other users (or assign other users the path to that profile)  You then used the profile editor to grant permissions to use the copied profile the the users in question.  This can also be done in NT 4.0, however, the recommended method it to define all settings using the policy editor..

Set the profile path in User Manager

Set Rights to use the profile in Control Panel, System.

in NT 3.51 the progile was a single file,  In NT 4.0, it is a series of files and subidirectories for each user the default is located in drive:\winnt\profiles

In this directory you will find the users name along with several files and subdirectories.

Users get their setting from this directory as well as the drive:\winnt\profiles\all users directory.

New users get their settings from  drive:\winnt\profile\default

Hope this helps
