I suddenly find myself as the admin for a small WS2012R2 domain of 10 win 7 pro workstations and 15 users with roaming and folder redirection. I am self taught on this and my knowledge of ws2012 is very limited.
The workstations have different programs installed, and I am wanting to restrict some users to only have certain programs on their individual desktops, regardless of which machine they are logged in at.
I have full access to the users accounts both locally on the workstations and on the server, so I can change the desktop folder contents.
Currently, any given user at the moment has duplicated icons for some programs and inactive ones for missing programs on a particular workstation.
In real terms the users will only be moving between 4 workstations for the bulk of their work, which will have the same core set of installed programs on each. The admins however should be able to access a further set of core programs plus some individual workstation specific ones.
Could someone explain what is possible in this scenario, bearing in mind I am extremely uncomfortable with doing this, and need the info in simple terms!
