Terminal Server user access rights

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I'm not very bright and can't see what I'm doing wrong or if what I'm trying to do is meant to work.

I made a new user, assigned all the groups etc. Set a home dir and profile path
Logged onto the TS without problems
I changed the TS profile to a manditory profile
Tested the TS login again - no probs

I made more users and set them up the same as the first user
BUT i pointed their TS profile to the same folder as the first user.
The owner of that folder is Administrators
I granted the other users full access to the profile folder

When I log on as one of the other users I get errors:

1) You do not have sufficient access to your computer to connect to the selected printer
2) Windows Scripting Host - Loading your settings failed (Access is denied)

Is what I'm trying to do not meant to work or am I doing something wrong?
