Terminal server user profile getting copied to Windows Server 2003 local profile?
Posted on 2011-02-10
I have a Windows Server 2003 that I've been testing and playing with. It is running Terminal Services. The original few users were set up such that their profiles are stored at C:\Documents and Settings... (I have since changed that so new users are created at D:\Documents and Settings) I use those user names to remote in using Terminal Server. In "Active Directory Users and Computers", under the "Terminal Services Profile" tab I have a profile path pointing to D:\Profiles\username. Now, under the "Profile" tab, under "User Profile" both boxes are blank, i.e., no Profile Path and no Logon Script.
However, when I log on and off with User1, it seems to copy everything from D:\Profiles\User1 to C:\Documents and Settings\User1, thus clogging up the system OS partition.
Can I stop it from using what I think is a typical Server 2003 roaming profile and use only the T.S. - specific profile?
