AD and Terminal Services

I am in the process of migrating multiple domains into one domain and one forest.  Currently in the target domain I have user accounts already in place.  We use these accounts for Citrix logins to access terminal server farms.  When I migrate from the source to the target I want the migrated source accounts to be used aIs their regular profile, and I want to add the current information in the target domain to become their Terminal Services profile, so that they are not constantly logged into the TS servers.  They would have to launch their Citrix app to gain access to the TS applications.  I can see the TS tab in AD, but dont see anywhere that I can set a logon script up in TS for their TS apps.  Can someone please advise me on the best way to accomplish this.

You can put teh TS servers in a seperate OU and use a group policy to set the login script. Also on the ts server there is a usrlogon.bat file that runs for each user at logon.  I've also just droped a script in the all users startup folder.

Well the AD for that domain is running on all three of the TS's.  Could you be more specific?

IF you create a seperate Organization unit in AD. then you can create a group policy for that OU. in the settings of the policy you can set a logon scrit. Also, on the users is a usrlogon.cmd in the sytem32 folder. this is processed each time someone logs into the user and you can use this for application specific logon scripting.

the group policy would also allow you to only use local profiles on the server until you migration was complete.
