I would like to check that windows 7 and Windows 2008 roaming profiles should be pointing to the same profile.v2, to me they are different OS's and when you share the roaming profile in your desktop (Windows 7) and them go home and connect remotely to your TS (Windows 2008) the profile get modify with the stamp of the latest OS which modify settings on the desktop and task bar as this obviously look different.

Your comments or advices.

My understanding is that there are 2 tabs on each user account one for profile and one for Terminal Server profile.  Configure these to different locations

Yes they are there but some users indicate that this is for Windows 2003 TS vs Windows 7.
Do you have Windows 7 and TS 2008 with Roaming profiles?
What your experience and how you configure it please?

If you are using Roaming User profile they go to both the Windows 7 PC and Windows 2008 Server TS server there are not two separate profiles

Thank you for your comments dariusg, but on my expierence this 2 OS's have different desktop treatment so they should be separate, do you have users connecting to boths OS's and appearing with a profile looking like a W 2008 on a win 7 Machine??

Well the desktop experience between Windows 7 and Windows 2008 Server R2 are the same build so, you can have the same profile for both. Now the recommendation is to have two different profiles because of some of the settings on Windows 2008 Server R2 aren't desirable.
