I have a Citrix Environment already established, my previous DC became corrupt and I lost the roaming setup I had with Citrix.

What are the steps do I have to do on my Domain Controller to reestablish roaming profile again.

I have the following running but are useless with the roaming profile.

Active Directory
DNS
DHCP
Single Sign On
Provisioning Server
Desktop Delivery
Application Server

Step 1>>> Created USer folder in shared folder with same as account ID with respective right for folder owner & domain Admin

Step 2>>> move respective user to citrix user OU

Step 3>>> Add home drive path in user properties. (users data folder path)

Step 4>>> login once & then logoff (this will enalble folder redirection for user)

Step 4>>> Add user profile path in AD for creating user profile folder in citrix_profile folder (do not create user profile folder manually let it create automatically once user is login)

Step 5>>> Now ask user to login & logoff two Times & then on third login configure outlook for user

Thank you guys! I am currently on another assignment. I will get back to you after I tested the two steps.

Are there any additional procedures with the provisioning server? Or the AD is the only configuration.

Nothing with Provisioning Services.  Just make sure you have profiles in place to ensure user state data is available.  If you are using non-volatile or are not caching profiles (shouldn't be caching profiles) then you may want to also set up profile redirection and perhaps go a step further with Profile Management to alleviate logon time.

You also must disable caching on the profile share, of your roaming profiles can be damaged.

right click on the shared profile folder -> properties -> sharing -> advanved sharing -> caching

select : no files or programs from the shared folder are available offline.
