TSE Profile redirection

Posted on 2011-10-19

Windows 2008 R2 RDS Server member server

I want to store users profile information on D: drive (in order not to saturate C: drive)
I would like to do that without changing user profile information in AD (since if I change it in AD it will change for all other TSE servers the user connects and I do not want that)

Idealy I would like to make this change in group policy on this specific server only so that when user opens a TSE connection to this specific server, the profile will be on D:\users

    As it is one server maybe this would be an option otherwise you could redirect individual folders (AppData, Desktop etc..) through GPO, I don't believe you can redirect the entire profile folder.
