Server 2008 R2 Roaming Profiles config
Posted on 2011-10-09
I am wanting a simple sanity check on how other folks do Roaming Profiles within Server 2008 R2 and whether you have experienced any issues.
I have two physical servers, both running 2008 R2, one Terminal Server, one DC/ File Server. Users have roaming profiles enabled by Group Policy, I have all folders redirected to a "User Documents" share, and the users profile itself on a "User Profile" share. In theory I believe this should work, but I may be mistaken.
There are issues with the Terminal Server, it may not be related but I want to eliminate this possibility with your assistance. On occasion when a user logs in, the login process will hang on the "Loading User Profile" stage, the server locks up and the only way I have found to fix it is a hard restart.
Should I re-think roaming profiles, or look elsewhere to resolve the issues, any help is appreciated.
