Windows 2003 Terminal Server - User Profiles
Posted on 2009-04-21
We are implementing a Windows 2003 (64bit) terminal server to improve remote working, and I am undecided on how to partition the disk space. We have a RAID1 consisting of a total 143GB. My concern is that the users will consume to much disk with the content of their user profiles. In turn the server will grind to a halt. In order to minimise the affect of this, I am considering splitting the drive, and using the second partition to accommodate user profiles. However, I'm not sure if, or how, this can be done.
Ultimately, I am looking for a policy or registry tweak that will set the second partition as the default location for all user profiles.
