I have a windows 2008 R2 server network with 3 x servers all of them domain controllers
The domain functional level is 2003

I have setup a separate directory for the remote desktop services roaming profiles and set all the necessary shares and security rights. I have set the appropriate path for the remote desktop roaming profiles in the user's AD. The user in question also has a normal profile path that works fine and is a domain admin member.

The problem I am having is, that when logging this user into the server remotely, it does not save his profile to the RDP directory mentioned above. He does however get his normal desktop so I am assuming is it using the normal profile rather than create a new one in the roaming profile directory.

I have searched the web and find nothing specific to this problem. There is heaps of data on best practise of roaming profiles but my specific problem is with the remote desktop services roaming profile - the normal profile works just fine - to sum up, I have setup and configured the RDP profile but it is still using the normal one.

Can anyone please help?
