remote desktop services temp profile logons

I just setup remote desktop services on are domain controller and everyone who logins to it using remote desktop keeps getting temporary profiles. I mus be doing something wrong. This is a new 2008 r2 installations. Do I need to set a path for the remote users?

Users should never use the same profile for their normal workstation and their TS sessions (to avoid profile corruption).
To set a TS-specific roaming profile:

1.Use the "Terminal Services Profile" tab in the AD account properties

or (better!) :
2.use a Group Policy, linked to the OU which contains the Terminal Server machine account, and configure the setting
Computer Configuration - Administrative templates - Windows components - Terminal Services
"Set path for TS roaming profiles"
Note that you should not add %username% here, just something like \\server\TSprofiles.
To avoid filling up your system disk on the TS, combine both options above with the following setting (see KB 274152):
Computer Configuration - Administrative templates - System - User profiles
"Delete cached copies of roaming profiles"
And to make troubleshooting of user profiles a bit easier, configure this setting as well:
Computer Configuration - Administrative templates - System - User profiles
"Add the Administrators security group to roaming user profiles"

Hi janpakula:

Did did what you said, don't get temp profile popup anymore, but I don't see their profile in the roaming folder I created and shared with remote desktop users.

profile is getting save when you log off - please check again after logoff of user
if it is not there check  C:\WINDOWS\Debug\UserMode\userenv.log for indication of errors whilst logging off.
