Override Roaming Profiles

Basically we use Citrix to publish an application to a world-wide audience that requires its own roaming profile.

Due to security restrictions and a very restrictive ADS enviorment I need to find a way to either override or explicitly assign a users' roaming profile.

The caveat is, we cannot define the roaming profile in the user properties. Basically we (Citrix Application Admins) are only delegated authority on a single OU (and below) in the AD which does not include the domain users. We need to be able to ensure that OUR roaming profile from OUR fileserver gets picked up rather than the domain specified roaming profile when a user logs into the published application.

Please let me know if you require more information I will try my best to get it for you. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Have you tried creating a GPO on your OU?  If you're able to, you might want to enable loopback processing (<Your GPO Name> Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy > User Group Policy loopback processing mode  (set to either Merge or Replace -- check the "explain" tab for description) <-- this is done so users that log onto the servers in the OU have settings that apply -- ONLY in those OUs, to your servers.

Another setting you would want to enable is roaming profiles (to your specifications).  You can do this in the same GPO under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Terminal Services > "Set path for TS Roaming Profiles".  Set to enabled and put in the path where your TS roaming profiles are stored.
