Disable TS profiles


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

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
