Loading a File from San to Term Server then Unload and Save Back to San at log off?
Posted on 2010-01-05
We have 250 users that ALL have an outlook.pst file sitting in their My Documents.
We've set up folder redirection for the My Documents to our SAN, and those get loaded up at log in and everything is working fine there.
Our issue is that we have these .PST files that are constantly getting hit on the SAN and causing slowness.
We do not have an exchange server, nor plan ot get one any time soon $$$$, we use ISP Pop accounts hitting Outlook.
So my question is this. I know running PST across the network is a bad bad idea. We originally had these locally on the Term Servers Local Profile, but that filled up the server fast, as well users bounced from term to term.
So is there a way to have the user log in, have the PST load locally on to the term server, then outlook would work locally with that pst file. Upon log out, the pst file would unmount, and get pushed back to the SAN for back up?
Would also be interested in a way to FORCE a user to a specific Term Server no matter what term server they typed in to RDP. Something that would link to their username would be great.
