  • Manual profile roaming in WorkGroup

    Hi,

    I was wondering if its possible to create manual roaming profiles for 4 computers(1 xp pro file server, 3 xp desktops) buy setting up the profiles as remote profiles on each computer for all profiles.

    Will it work? or will all the managed passwords get erased each time u log on from a diffrent computer?

    Should work -- set up a share on one PC and point the profiles for UserA to that share from all the PCs in the Workgroup. Lots of admin effort....

      but aren't all the managed passwords encrypted with the Computer\user and password?
      if its kept on the profile and the user logs on from a diffrent computer, won't they get erased? or are they saved localy?

        PASS -- its worth trying out for one user.

        I will do some tests if I get a moment free...

          When i tried testing it it, i found that when i try to log on, windows can't connect to the server inorder to get the remote profile,
          i trying mounting a device , and set the correct password in managed password, nothing helped, could it be that when using remote profiles you can only use your real logon login and password?
