Single Mandatory Profile for Multiple Users Not Working on Windows 7
Posted on 2011-02-24
I would like to have several users running of the same mandatory profile. i created a roaming profile called template and copied it within the same folder renaming to templateman. i then renamed the ntuser.dat within to ntuser.man and set the path in the users AD properties but the only account that can log on with this mandatory profile is the user that originally made the roaming profile template. (hope that makes sense please ask if you need clarification.) other users get temporary profiles. This only affects Windows 7 logons. the same procedure works in windows XP.
I have set a GPO to stop users logging on with a temporary profile. the policy also deletes cached copies of roaming profiles. the logon error i get is: "The Group Policy Client service failed the logon. Access is denied." so looking like a permissions issue. help much appreciated with this one.
