Best user profile practice
Posted on 2008-10-16
We have a Windows 2003 domain, in which we use Roaming Profiles, and My Documents redirection.
When a user's laptop crashes, we wipe the machine, and it is back up and running within hours, with NO DATA LOSS.
However, this is causing problems for one of our users. She is out of the office 50% of the time doing presentations, and she gets annoying pop messages about "Roaming profile cannot be found", and "Cannot synchronize", and cannot connect to the domain.
She wants to make it a stand alone machine, and take it off the network. I don't see that as an option. I like being able to fully recover a crashed laptop within 2 hours or less without any data loss.
What options do we have. All suggestions are welcome!
