hello experts,

I would like  to setup for each user (or Group) to have their own user profile (access) when they login to terminal server. Is there a way to do this?

When you login a server through TS or remote desktop, Windows creates a user profile automatically under C:\Documents and Settings. Each user has their own profile. I am not sure what would you like.

hi K,

what i meant is to have each group profile. Example, general user can only access to MS office and standard application. Accounting will have profile on the desktop and access to accounting application.

thanks again

You can set up TS profiles in the Active Directory to do that, just specify a TS Login Path for whatever user or group you want to have access to specific items on their desktop, and add them to that path.

Ok, let's assume you want certain icons and folders on a users desktop when they log onto a terminal server.

So, first, create a folder wherever you want them to be logging on to (let's say H:\Profiles)

Then add that path to their Terminal Services Profiles Path in the active directory

They will then log on into the terminal server using that profile path, initially it will be default, so, blank other then the programs everyone gets.

Then you create a folder with those special items that you want them to get access to, and throw it into their (now created) profile on the H Drive (so, H:\Profiles\BobSmith\Desktop)

Done, now when they log on, they get access to that folder and items
