AD and Citrix

In AD we have certain users which have the 'Home folder' path set in the 'Profile' section and the 'Connect' option is set to use u: \\cslwindat01\homes\<user-id>

However, we have an application which runs in Citrix and it needs to read certain files which should be created in tsprofiles section for the user, however I have noticed that these files, which are called BCS.INI and HOSTS.INI are created in the U: drive.  So, if I uncheck the 'Connect' option, these files are then correctly created in the tsprofiles section for the user.

So, ideally the the BCS.INI and HOSTS.INI should be created in the tsprofiles and not in the U: drive

Can you explain what is causing this and resolve this issue??

Thanks

what does your "terminal services profiles" tab look like?  i believe settings in the profiles tab will have precedent over conflicting settings in the ts profile tab.

ok, i see what you're saying.   does that file path have to be their home directory?  if i could not get the code of the program changed to properly create those .ini files then i would find an alternative way to get that drive mapped (netuse, vb script, group policy) and set the home folder back to "local path".    Or you could set the profile home folder path to the "local path" and then map that drive on the terminal services profile tab.   of course fixing one problem can also create another.

In this case, is there a way to blank out the HOMEDRIVE path, so a drive letter is not picked up?

i wonder if you could use the "profile path" field on the terminal services profile tab for this?
