We have a Windows 2003 server domain in our school district with different OU's based on computer location and users. Is there a way to use a default profile stored on the network for a group of computers? For example, I would like the HS office to use the default profile HS_Office. After they would log in and receive the default profile, I would like it to cache on the machine under the users account (ex. Mike Smith). From here, the user always use their local profile (Mike Smith) and not the computer default profile unless it is a new account.
I am trying to get away from using the local default profile on the machines. Is this possible? Any suggestions on doing this differently? Any suggestions from IT people in other school districts on how they do user profiles?
