Hi Guys,

I have a group of users (1000 of the suckers) who all have their own roaming profiles, and the move between systems the whole time. I want to set up the following (Server 2003):

1.) Create a single Mandetory Profile (let's call it MANPROF as an example)
2.) Place the MANPROF profile on a share on my server
3.) Grant all users permission to this profile
4.) Point all the users profile path in Active Directory to this new MANPROF profile

Can anyone think of possible pitfalls that I need to beware of in doing so, ie. performance. etc?

Thanks!
