Hi All
I would like to find out, is it possible to redirect just the profiles that a server creates when users log onto it.
for instance, I have one server on my domain that struggles with drive space, I would like to set this server so that when users log onto it, their profiles are kept in e.g D:\Documents and Settings\ instead of on the C:
I dont want to set up domain romaining profiles, I would just like to make this change on one particular server.

The server is a Windows 2003 with SP1 Terminal Server.

Thanks!

You can use Group Policy for Folder Redirection.

You can create a GPO and link it to the OU that the server is in. Then configure the user settings to redirect the folders and also enable loopback processing on the GPO so the user setting will take effect.
