I have a laptop that has Win7 Pro loaded. I log onto a domain that has a Win 2000 server that acts as a terminal server and a Win 2003 server that also authenticates logins and has Exchange server running on it.

I want to get the same 'desktop' when I log into my terminal server session when away from my primary laptop as I do when I log onto my laptop when I'm in the office which I log onto the domain from normally.

I think I need to configure my account to use a 'roaming profile' but am not sure if this will work, or if it will work if the terminal server is Win 2000 and my laptop is Win7.

Can anyone help.

Thanks in advance
