Sharing Mandatory Profile for 400 Users

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Hello All,
I have been using Terminal Services on Three Load Balanced Servers using Server2003 Standard.  All of my terminal server users have there profiles located on a network share where all of the profiles are located for terminal Server Users.

Management has decided to have a fixed desktop where users see a standard desktop and I was wondering if I could do this easily.
Here is what I have working so far:  I have a profile setup in a network share where all users have assess to that profile.  I modified the registry entries on the profile so that all users have access to the profile.  I was able to pick  random users and specify the same profile loaction those selected users.  Because the profile which i shared was mandatory, each users ends up with there own mandatory profile.

Is there a way in group policy to point all of my users to have a mandatory profile?  I need users to mandatory profiles by default with the selected application that I want them to see on there desktop?  Thanks.
