When in our office my users have roaming profiles so their desktop follows them wherever they go.
Currently when they log into our terminal server from home they get a different desktop.  How can I make it so when they log into the terminal server they get their roaming profile desktop.

1. Removing the copies of the profiles - this can be done by changing the following Computer GPO setting:
- Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System \ User Profiles.
- Locate "Delete cached copies of roaming profiles" and select Enabled.
, Redirect the user's documents and desktop folders. These are usually large folders and make logon very slow. I would recommend ensuring these are redirected. Also if you do this for the TS and Desktop profiles - users can access the same locations.

2.Ref the below links,

3.In User properties in AD, there's a tab called Terminal Services Profile, you set the roaming profile path there.
