Migrate users from Thin Client to PCs

Hello,

We currently have a Server 2008R2 DC, and TS Farm with Roaming profiles and Folder Redirection.

Due to new application restrictions we are moving away from thin clients to PCs.

Now that we have the PCs I would like to take advantage of locally cached files provided by roaming profiles. I will also retire the TS Farm with the exception of the file server where "folder redirected" profiles reside.


When I add a PC to the domain then log in as a user everything looks great except if they log off and lose network connectivity they cannot access their profile. "There was a problem with your roaming profile, you have been logged in with a temporary..."

Obviously the profile is not being written locally

I have looked through all of my notes from when the TS Farm was created but cannot seem to pinpoint where I have restricted the writing of profiles locally. Clearly we didn't want profiles being written locally on a thin client, but now I do since we have PC's.


I greatly appreciate any pointers.


Cheers

Jurgen

Hi, assuming that it was implmented via Group Policy, a good place to start looking is under both User and Machine settings (mainly machine), Administrative Temlates -> System -> User Profiles.

Alastair.
