All our users have s TS-profile. The profiles are working just fine on our production TS servers.

I also have some test TS-servers - for applikation tests. How do I prevent the TS-profiles to be loaded on my test TS-servers? (not using roaming profiles on these test servers)


Thanks in advance

    Accepted Solution

    Add a group policy to the OU where your test servers reside. The group policy setting that needs to be enabled is found here:
    Computer configuration > Administrative Tools > System > User Profiles > Only allow local user profiles

    Assisted Solution

    This should be fairly simple to do. Go to the following link and scroll down to the section named 'Disabling Roaming User Profiles on Certain Computers' and follow the instructions:
     You are just disabling roaming profiles on this one computer using Group Policy.
    I hope this helps. Good luck.
