How to configure new roaming profiles on Server 2008 and not migrate old roaming profiles
Posted on 2010-03-30
I have added a Server 2008 Domain Controller onto my network where the domain functional level is still Server 2003.
The users on the network have workstations loaded with Windows XP Pro.
Roaming profiles are currently being used and are located on a Server 2003 Domain Controller.
I want to change Group Policy so that the Roaming profiles reside on my 2008 Domain Controller.
I do not want the old profiles to carry over and want new profiles to be created.
I have read where the old profiles were deleted and then users were unable to have profiles created on the new share.
How do I make it so that new profiles are created on the new share where Group Policy will point?
It seems as if Group Policy should be changed so that local profiles are created when the policy is removed and then remove the desktop redirection.
Once redirection is moved and users are utilizing a local profile then configure Group Policy to point to the new share.
Is that correct?
