    Make a shared folder and in AD Users and Computers, inside their user account set the location of their profile to the server.  Like  \\server\profileshare\%username%

    netlogon is not what you want to use, and it is readonly normally

    make a new share on the server and give Full control to the user and use that share for the profile path
