I have numerous RDS servers that are in a 2008 R2 domain (both domain and forest levels are 2008 R2).  All member servers are VMs and running either 2008 or 2008 R2.

Right now, all servers are only set up with C drives.  We want to set up quotas for certain users, so we are going to put in new VHDs as a D drive for all the servers and then apply the quotas to the D drive.  But so that all users except the domain admins get the quota, we want to make all users' profiles store on the D drive except the domain admins.

To complicate things, these users might be logging into a number of the terminal servers (none set up as NLB clusters and none through an RD connection broker server).  But regardless of where they are logging into, the user profile should be stored on the D drive.  

Is there a way to push this out through Group Policy?  What would I need to do?
