Different Roving User profiles
Posted on 1998-03-23
I have Desktops en Laptops in my network. They all can connect to my NT server (domain). I have User profiles enables so the profile is saved on the local computer (c:\windows\profiles\user) and on the server in their home directory. So far so good.
User can switch between a desktop and a laptop computer. As a result their profile settings get mixed up. DUN settings on the laptop doesn't exist on the desktop so things bound to get wrong.
What I would like to do is keep a different profile directory for Desktop and Laptop users.
and the same structure on the server in their home directory.
(Users use the same account name on Desktop and Laptop.)
I realize that users doens't have roving profiles when roving between desktop and laptop, but that's no problem.
I have a Microsoft doc which discribes how to put the profile in an other directory then the (default) home directory, but is doesn't seem to work. (Resource kit W95: Maintaining Roving Profiles on Other Networks).
Dows this make any sense? If so, please give me some input...
Thanks in advance,
