If you want to have separate profiles I would set up a location on a file server a location for profiles, then in AD open the user's properties and locate the Remote Desktop Services Profile tab, in there specify the location of where you configured the users profiles to be held.


User's will have a different profile when they log on to a local system than the one when they log on to the terminal server.
