Hello,

2 Windows 2003 TSE Server
Old TSE server = TSE2008
New TSE server = TSE2011


I manually copied the profile of user PDA from C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\PDA of TSE2008 to E:\PROFILES\PDA of TSE2011

E:\PROFILES in TSE2011 is shared as TSEPROFILES

I modified in AD the TSE profile of user PDA from nothing to \\TSE2011\TSEPROFILES\PDA

When I logon as PDA en TSE2011 server, the problem is that user profile for PDA is created in BOTH C:\documents and settings\PDA and E:\PROFILES\PDA

THis is not what I need, I do not want the PDA user profile on the C Drive

Any idea ?
Thanks

If I'm reading correctly you want to change the default location of cached profiles from C:\Documents and Settings to E:\Profiles.  Is that correct?

What is occurring at the moment is standard for Terminal Server.  When a user logs in a cached copy of the user's profile is copied to the default location of the profile path (C:\Documents and Settings or C:\Users depending upon the OS).

If so, you'll need to modify the server's Registry.  Modify the ProfilesDirectory value at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

I want all user profiles  to be stored only on E:\profiles (and nothing stored in C:\Documents and Setting)

If I modifiy this registry key what will happens with cached profiles already in C:\documents and settings?

If I modifiy this key could I be able to go back as It was (if I have any problem?)

Thank you
