Roaming Profiles

Hello,

I have two terminal servers in my current farm. For each server, I have the following value set in Group Policy to allowing roaming profiles when connecting to each server.

Computer Config -> Policies -> Admin Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Profiles -> Set path for Remote Desktop Services Roaming User Profile


For some reason, even with these values set, I am seeing local profiles still being logged on each server. Any ideas as to why this may be happening?  (There are profiles on the redirected location as well)

Thanks.

There are 2 things to check:

1) GPO gets applied: use GPMC and generate a policy result for the user or log on on your terminal Server and run
GPRESULT /H GPReport.html
on a command prompt to check policy appying.

2) Permissions to the roaming profile share/filesystem:

What value did you set for the path ? Must be a UNC path, I.e. \\servername\tsprofiles ?

Did you set Everyone:Full control permissions to the share permissions?

What are the NTFS permissions to the shared folder?

See http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2008/06/30/automatic-creation-of-user-folders-for-home-roaming-profile-and-redirected-folders.aspx

A local profile is always there but it will be copied to the share on logoff or downloaded from the share on logon.
