Should be Easy Points....Domain Function

This is something that I am not sure even exists, but it should.

I am wondering how I can set up an account in Active Directory (at least I assume it would be under Active Directory) so that it will set things up for me.

Basically I want to be able to make a template desktop, where I install printers, map directories, place icons, etc... and I want it to auto apply to all the Domain accounts I try, similar to the local machines All Users folder in Documents and Settings.

Like I said this should either be easy to do, or should be an added feature...

on a single machine, you would use the administrator account, and then copy the administrator profile to the default user profile.

You could possibly store the profile on a server, and make it a mandatory profile, or just make it available for each user to use, using the settings in each user account.

the danger here is that now, multiple users have access to and can change this profile, unless it is a mandatory profile.

IS this what you had in mind? i do not think that there is a way with AD the way you are envisioning, Sorry,

Good Luck,

Basically I am looking for a way to have the computer create things while it creates a profile for the user the first time a domain user logs into the machine.....

I figure this should be something that is available, but at the same time I have never seen it, and something like this would be such a timesaver in initial setups that I probably would have if it existed.

Still only costs a few points to ask.

Also each profile will need to be fully customizable once they are initially setup.

Basically I found this is not possible, thanks to those who tried.
