  • Terminal server profile

    Hi,

    i want to create profile on a shred folder to all terminal server users.
    what i did for testing is to logon with one user into the terminal and then logout
    copy his profile to \\server\tsprofile\username and add the same line into the user ad terminal server profile.
    when the user logon to the terminal server i see that he get the profile that i set to him but i see that he copy the profile to the local server documents and settings. why he copy the profile there and not use the profile in the share?

    Thx

    That's the way TS profiles work. When the user logs on, the profile on the network share is copied to the TS server and "runs" from there. When the user logs off, any changes to the local copy are copied back to the network profile.

      can i changed it that he will work directly from the network share?
      if not does it always make a full copy of the profile or only the changes?
      what if the user have 3GB profile is it always copy the full profile?

        No.
        It depends.
        Yes.

        I would recommend you look at the Terminal Services section of the Microsoft TechNet web site to get a better understanding of user profiles in a Terminal Server environment.

          There is a GP to delete local pofiles after logoff.

          No user should have a 3gig profile. You should try and keep them as low as possible otherwise it will increae logon times. All documents should be re-directed to a file server

            Also, if you want to limit the size of the user profile there is a GP setting for that as well. Redirecting the "My Documents" folder is a MS recommendation for roaming TS profiles.

              Consider redirecting users' Desktops as well as My Documents. Users sometimes keep large folders on their own desktops as well, like copies of DVDs and so on.
