I have 170 users and growing. We have 3 servers all with Server 2008 R2, with 2 of them being domain controllers. We have alot of users moving to different areas and depts and some users who will use more then one PC.
I am looking for the best way to create a default profile, so when they login it will always have the same desktop icons, taskbar shortcuts and favorites in IE and Firefox. These are the only things that need to be the same on all PC's (All windows 7 Pro machines).
I haven't been able to find any good articles on setting this up through GP and not sure if thats even possible without having to install a bunch of things on the server or workstations. Roaming profiles could possibly work, but sounds like there are some issues with using it - slowness on the network and issues when a user is logged into two different PC's at the same time.
If you have ideas how I can do this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Just a few more things. I want users to be able to add favorites and save documents to their desktop (these things dont need to transfer, just stay on that one PC). Just need a default setup.
