Roaming profiles not working with VDI

Hi,

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.

Your GPO for TS Roaming Profiles  "Computer/Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Terminal Services/Set path for TS Roaming Profiles" run olny for TS-User.
If you put a RDS within this OU and your testuser start a RDP-session the profile-path should be created.
Win7 VDI works like a real Win7 and use the path for server-based profiles like a real win7.
try to set the path variable at the user object within AD (dsa.msc).

That makes sense, thanks.  I was following an article online which suggested using the GPO I mentioned and getting nowhere.
