Urgent Please!!!! Setting up Multiple Local Terminal Service Profiles for a User

Hi guys,

Need help.

We have 4 Terminal Servers.
The users who access these have windows accounts with windows roaming profiles and a network home directory.
I want to give these users a local terminal service profile, but a DIFFERENT one for EACH terminal server.
Also, I want to be able to change the path to their ts profile to D:\tsprofile\<username>
Instead of doing this manually for each user in AD User & Properties, I wanted to do this through Group Policy.
Can this be done?

Thank you.

Yes you can specify a different TS profile from the regular roaming profile in a GPO you just have to specify what profile you want for TS. If you can specify a different profile for each TS server I really do not know but my first tought would be no.
it depends what your terminal services are based on is windows adnvance server?

Hi mredfelix!

We are using Windows Standard 2003 Server.

In the AD User properties, I did try putting in <%computername% variable to define a local profile path for each TS.
But it does not allow environmental variables to be placed for this.

I cannot see a way to do this in AD nor Group Policy.

Thanks anyway.
