Windows 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Services Farm profiles - need to move to new share

sdrexel asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-27
We currently have a 2 server Windows 2008 R2 RDS Farm. We also have roaming profiles stored on a server share. We cannot see most of the profiles because of right issues. We use Windows Backup to back them up and are wanting to move those profiles to a new server share. It seems as easy as recovering them to the new server share, maintaining the ACL structure and changing the GPO to have Remote Desktop Services look at the new server for the profiles instead of the old server.

Am I missing anything or should it be as easy as that? I know I'm overthinking it, but wanted to be sure.
Thanks for any help!
