I have a situation where users log onto a single Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Server. I want to create a backup TS so that if they can't log onto the first one they can log onto the second one. This second TS will not be active generally - it's virtualized and I only want it to kick in when the first Terminal Server goes out of commission - I don't expect it to happen very often. I don't want to set up roaming profiles in this case - I have found that roaming profiles increase the chance of profile corruption - and in my case the users will never need to log onto another Terminal Server unless there's a disaster with the first one. What would be the best way to do this so that if the first server does go down and I have to bring up the second one, I would have to go through the least amount of labour to get everybody up and running.
If you don't want to use Roaming Profiles then leave it as it is. Let the system create a new local profile for the users. It is a temporary solution anyway and they can continue to work in their applications.
