HI Experts,
I just installed a Barracuda load balancer between my 2 Windows 2003 Terminal Servers. I would like to replicate the user profiles without using roaming profiles. I have an older version of Doubletake software but it's expensive and seems like overkill for what I need it to do. Can someone recommend some replication software that will replicate the user profiles on these Terminal Servers? Thank you!

It seems you have excluded what would have made this possible and seamless.
terminal server roaming profiles.

If you have windows 2003 R2, you could configure the DFS-replication to replicate the c:\documents and settings\ make sure to exclude Administrator.
The other issue you will have multiple copies of data on each. and could run into a state where the profiles waste a large portion of your hard drive.

Yes, I realize we could do it with roaming profiles but for a variety of reasons, we don't want to use that option. Thanks for the reply. I am going to close out the question for a lack of responses.

You have limited the options to such an extent as there is nothing to offer.
