I need to create standard user profile settings for users that will connect to the terminal server running on top of Windows 2003 where everything will be predefined.

How to do it?

Thank you.

log on as a new user (ts)
set the profile as you wish
log off
copy the profile from the users profile directory to the all users directory
rename the ntuser.man

OK, something doesn't work.

I've created the User Profile and copied it and renamed .dat to .man, but the user with no profile didn't picked the All Users profile up.
