Roaming profiles not working with VDI
Posted on 2012-03-30
We're setting up a new VDI system, configured as follows:
VM-HOST - Server 2008 R2 Enterprise on physical box, Hyper-V and RD Virtualization Host roles, hosting VMs for VM-BROKER and 25x Win 7 Pro VMs for VDI
VM-BROKER - Server 2008 R2 Enterprise VM, RD Session Host, Connection Broker, Gateway and Web Access roles
PDC - Server 2003, AD, DNS etc
We have a GPO for Computer/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Terminal Services/Set path for TS Roaming Profiles set to \\VM-HOST\VDIProfile$ (Do not append the user name to the profile path is disabled) and linked to the OU that the VDI VMs are in.
Sharing permissions on the roaming profiles folder are :
CREATOR OWNER, Everyone: Full Control
NTFS permissions on the roaming profiles folder are:
CREATOR OWNER: Full Control - Subfolders and files only
Administrators, SYSTEM and Domain Users: Full Control - This folder, subfolders and files only
The VDI setup itself is working fine, however when we log in with test users it never creates the roaming profile folder for the user.
Any help much appreciated.
