Changing Terminal Services Profile Paths in AD (New Server)

Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Each user account on our domain has been manually set over the years with a Terminal Services User Profile - Profile Path: \\"server"\citrixprofiles\%username% AND a Terminal Services Home Folder - Connect: Z    To: \\"server"\citrixusers\%username%

Does anyone know of a tool, or maybe a GPO that can change the \\"server" on each of my user's accounts in AD, without having to manually change each 2,500+ accounts.

The current server: jdata is being decommed
The new server: usgulnas01 will house the Terminal Services Profile folders

admodify should do what you need
http://www.codeplex.com/admodify/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=6065
So you would change the path to \\newserver\share\%username%
Test on a few accounts first to get a feel for it.
Thanks

Hi

I just created a script for someone to do almost the exact same thing.
Have a look and see if this is what you want. It may need slight adjustments for your needs (need to add teh profile path and remove the normal home folders bit) but i can help with that if need be.
Otherwise, Mikes solution is just as good.

See the screenshot from admodify, you can modify that field.  I tested it and it worked.

Use GPO linked to OU with server to configure the paths by using the following policy settings
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services
\Set path for TS Roaming Profiles
\TS Home Directory
