Assume I have my servers virtualized and I multiple Terminal Servers with roaming profiles. Can I configure my cache location to be a single shared VHD so that the profile is not being loaded and saved on different Terminal Servers each time a user logs into a different TS?

Though you haven't said Outlook client in your description. I'm asuming you meant so. Outlook cached mode is not available when running on terminal server. It's not supported, end of line.

Sorry, but that is no longer the case with Windows 2008 R2 and Exchange 2010 - http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/officeappcompat/thread/8252c3a4-0542-4ade-a3aa-0365d3b7b1e0/. This was already settled in the original question - this was a related question to that one - http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/Windows_Server_2008/Q_26892056.html

I'm not aware of a quick way to move just the .ost (cache file) to another location. But you could look in to moving the local profile cache folder to another location. Just try searching 'redirect user profiles to another partition'. There are some recommending hard links and other recommending registry edits. I've not done any of these myself. Plus I'm not really sure how much benefit cached mode will make for most TS/RDP users.

If you've already looked up these links can you provide them to me.

Thanks. However, the first one is for Windows 2000 and the second one is for XP.  As I wrote per your question, my situation is Windows 2008 R2, Terminal Services/RDS and Exchange 2010.
