Remove terminal services profile path from AD users. Or, prevent profile path on TS.

How can I blank out (ie, remove) the specified TS profile Path for a several users?

I have ADmodify (2.0), but I get an error if I enable that field and then leave it blank.

Is there a way I can specify that the Terminal Server itself does not use the profile paths?  This would be most helpful as we have other TS's that I would like to use their TS profile on.

Thanks for your help.

You should be able to use AD Users and Computers, select the users, get their properties, and blank it that way.

You can also specify TS Roaming Profiles through Group Policy.  If you have terminal servers that you want to apply different policies to, put them in different OU's or different groups, create different policies and apply them to the different OU's or set the permissions to apply to the particular groups.

I do not want to remove them one at a time in ADUC.

Also, i created a GPO for that TS, but it will not let me leave a blank value in the Terminal Server Profile path.  If I disable the setting, it just picks it up from theirAD user settings, right?  I need to remove the path, not change it to a different value (unless its a blank value)

Thanks.

My apologies, I thought you could modify the TS Profile path of multiple users with ADUC, but that's limited to the Windows Roaming Profile.

According to the explanation in the TS Profile group policy settings, setting it to disabled forces a local profile to be used (unless otherwise set on the server itself).

I applied the GPO to specify disabled for TS Profile and it had no effect on "blanking out" or effectively disabling the use of TS profiles on this machine.

Sorry for the delay in this response, but I still am seeking a solution to the problem.

Did you confirm using GP Results that the policy was being applied correctly?
