Windows 2003 TSE and user profiles

My environement: 2 Windows 2003 TSE servers
 
I am adding a 3rd Windows 2003 TSE server. Since limited storage capacity of C drive in this server, I want to store all profiles on the D:\profiles folder (instead of C:\document and settings...). I do not want to use roaming profiles, I do not want to change AD user setting (nothing is stored in "Terminal Services Profiles" and nothing is stored in "Profiles" and I whant it to stay like this)

I do not want to use roaming profiles. I just want to tell my 3rd server to use d:\profiles instead of d:\document and settings to store all profiles (TSE ou non TSE).

CHanges should be done on the server itself (registry I suppose) and not on AD user configuration
Any solution ?

I hope my question is clear enough
Thank you

Follow the below process:

>Goto Start>Run
>Type Regedit and Click on OK which opens the registry editor.
>Navigate to the path:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList
>Double click the key " ProfilesDirectory"
And give the target path to where you want to relocate the Profile data.

And thats it!
ENJOY!

Sorry but it does not work !!

When I relocate the ProfileDirectory to e:\profiles (all rights granted to "everyone" in e:\profiles) I cannot open a session (in TSE mode). It tells me that the system cannot find or create a profile

Maybe because I need a server reboot ?

I did not try in local mode (non TSE) since I am at a remote location. It may work with local session opening and not RDP remote session ?

Thank you
