Creation of GP script for roaming profiles

Howdy,

I'm setting up a new server for a fire department that has about 60 firefighters on rotation.

All of these guys use only 4 PCs running Windows 7 Pro SP1 32bit with a roaming profile on Windows Server 2008 SBS (setup by me in 2008). Back then I manually added the roaming profile path "\\server\profileshare\username" to each user in the AD, however it was pretty time consuming, not to mention boring as hell.

I'm wondering if there's a way to setup a group policy in SBS server to automatically add EVERY user that I create in the Active Directory to the roaming profile path (where I simply change the actual username to a more generic %username%).

I have been searching for options for a couple of days now, but I couldn't find a straight answer on the internet.

Can any of y'all give me an idea?

Thanks

Arnold,

Thx for yer reply. It's definitely a big step forward towards what I want to accomplish, but just to make sure I understand you correctly there is no GP that can do that right?
