I had this question after viewing migrate from server 2008 SBS to server 2016 with essentials experience.


In 2008 SBS - I have roaming profiles for my users, in which in Active Directory Users and Computers, in a users properties, in the profile tab I have a path for each user.  

I see that in 2016 essentials it has user folder syncing to the server including the desktop.  syncing user desktops was a main reason I had roaming profiles in the past.  Plus transferring user settings from one machine to another.

Is it recommended to discontinue roaming profiles in server 2016?

Thanks and best regards,
