Hi,

We have AD 2003.

But I am not sure where the config for roaming profile is.

Its not under user properties, profile tab. The path is empty. Only Home folder is setup.

Also I looked under Group Policy and could not find it.

But we do have roaming profiles running.

Where can I find its configuration settings and location.

Thanks.

Roaming profiles is part of the AD user profile settings where you define where the user's profile path is i.e. \\domain\userprofile\%username%

This means when the user authenticates into any system, \\domain\userprofile\%username% will be checked for profile data, in the absence of any data, the local system will use the default to give the user the default settings.  After the logoff of the user the local profile is copied to \\domain\userprofile\%username%

I would suggest the use of a domain based share for the roaming profile location as it simplifies the transition when the current DC or profile share needs to be relocated.
