Hello,

I've got some RDS Server with RemoteApp, everythings is working fine.
I use roaming profils, redirection is working as well.

But i can see some personnal folder in C:\Users\ of the RDS Server.

I checked the registry, and i can see 2 keys about profils : PIC 1
- you can see that the redirection is OK : Centralprofile (in my exemple \\localhost)
- you can see a ProfileImagePath to C:\Users

PIC 1
What question is :
- What is ProfileImagePath ?
- Can I redirect everything ? even the ProfileImagePath to the same location that CentralProfile ?

thanks !!

Mathias

C:\Users\<username> is the local cache of the roaming profile. I've never seen a setting to avoid caching of the profile on the local system entirely. But there is a group policy setting to automatically delete the cached copy upon user logout. It's under Computer Configuation->Policies->Administrative Templates->System->UserProfiles->Delete cached copies of roaming profiles. Note while this avoids disk space from caching the users profiles it will probably increase the logon time as the full profile will have to copy every time.

Another possible issue if you choose to do this. If the roaming profile location is unavailable the users will be logged with a temporary profile. This may be worst as some things may not be configured and therefore won't work properly. Normally, the user would just be logged on with the cached copy and the roaming profile would be updated when it was available again.
