  • Creating multiple desktops with TS

    To All,

    Please help. I have been trying for the past week to create separate desktops for users logging into our Terminal Server. For the life of me, I can't seem to get this correct. Every time I log in to TS I get the default user profile and the desktop that I orginally configured. We now have several users logging into the TS but now I need a separate desktop for users in different OU's. On our TS we have a GP that "deletes the cached copies of roaming profiles" and we set the path for TS profiles - enabled. I tried enabling loopback processing, redirecting the desktops, but I still get the default user profile and desktop. I not sure if I have the configurations wrong or what. I do know I'm at my wits end. Please help.

    Thanks, deseparate in Southampton

    Try using gpresult to do an RSOP of one of the users to see what GPO's are being applied.

    Or , to narrow the problem down, create another OU as a test with bearely any of the features you have previously implimented & see how their profile appears. Then add one of those features back at a time until you find which one is causing you the grief.

      I don't completely understand your question but I will tell you that you can only have one default profile. Everyone logging in for the first time will get this profile, once they log in the default user profile is used to create their profile. You can not have multiple default user profiles. Deleting the cached copies of the romaing profiles removes them from the TS but their profile actually exists where ever you have your roaming profile TS path set to. When a user logs on for the first time the default user profile is used to create the user profile, when the user logs off their profile is copied to the TS roaming profile path. The next time they log on their profile is loaded from the TS roaming profile path to the TS server. The default profile has nothing to do with it at this point and is only used once when the user logs on for the very first time. If you need to create a different desktop for the users based on what OU they are in you might look into Desktop Redirection.

        Thank you for responding. I am looking to create a different desktop for the users when they login to the TS. I have tried desktop redirection but it continues to load the default user profiles' desktop instead of the desktop that I've created for thoses particular users. Even when I use the TS profile in AD, they still continue to get the default profile's desktop. I want a select group of users to have a different desktop on the TS but the redirection does not work. I hope I made this a little clearer. Thanks

          What happens if you choose "block inheritance" to stop you getting inherited policies from those GPO's above the new one you have created?
