Hi, is it possible to create a group policy that will automatically create a roaming profile for an added new user, set the folder permissions for this user and make folder redirection if the user uses vista to prevent profile with V2?
Can someone show me how to do this please?

I do not believe there are any ways to do this with just group policy. You would have to start out with a profile template to use as the roaming profile and maybe have a powershell script that you can run when you create a new user. The powershell script can then copy this profile for the new user and set the proper folder permissions.

You may have to search on your own for specifics and actual scripts or open additional questions but here is a general approach to this.

A. Create a group policy that sets up folder redirection and attach it to the OU for the users you want it to apply to.

B. Copy the user profile you want to use as a template(NTUser.dat)
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft%3Aen-us&q=copy+user+profile

C. Create a powershell script to
1. Create a new folder for the user
2. Set permissions on the folder for the user
3. Share the folder if it isnt in an already shared directory
4. Copy the ntuser.dat to this users folder
5. Set the profile property for the user in active directory to point to this location of ntuser.dat

So when you create a new user, the user is placed in an OU with the group policy that assigns folder redirection. Then you run this "setup script" to create and assign the users folder and profile path.
