Ok so I have a question for the RDS Geeks out there.  We have a remote site with no server that is connected to the Datacenter via a VPN.  I want to know if there is a way to prevent roaming profiles on their desktop PCs and allow it on the RDS servers.  Some of our users are seeing 5-6 minute login times because of their profile and the speed of the connection.  If i login with a user with no roaming profile.  It is a quick login.

All the desktops are Windows XP and Windows 7 Mix.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hey Tucker,

You can go into your Group Policy and under Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles, enable the "Only allow local user profiles" this will stop roaming profiles from logging on to the desktop PCs.
