  • please help... setup a roaming profile

    So anyways in my attempt to make my server have the ability to have roaming profiles…
    I have missed a step somewhere… because I still have to add the user to the local Admin group in order to logon to the machine… any help would be much appreciate or atleast I have a bullet…

    Re: please help... I have one bullet left... and I about to use it!!!

    I vote for the bullet.

    You want your profile to be roaming so that you can log onto the server using it or workstations?
    Unless your domain permissions have you in the domain/enterprise admin group you can't log onto the server.

      hahaha my friend... I am liking the bullet more and more...

      workstations... I would love to ghost a workstation and hand it off to the user... and the user just walkup to it... and logon... without me loggin on as the admin and adding the user to the local admin group...

              Changed the thread title to be more appropriate.

                I assumed the same, kinda like what HP did

                  Maybe I'm missing something but I don't understand why the user needs to be a member of the local admins to log on... in fact, I would recommend not having your users local admins (makes for admin headaches and compromises security)

                    I did not want to ask that question because one of my clients has an app that needs admin rights, so i can understand the need. However absolutely it is a major security issue, and drives me nuts.

                      ... roaming profile only appear for domain setup only right? why there is a local account/ membership of local admin??? Domain local or... ???

                      Sorry I feel so confuse...

                        Looked back and I didn't qualify what I meant... Need admin rights to log onto a server - not a workstation.

                          well... thank you for all the to do... that my post has gotten... but yeah... it is a nightmare for a user to local admin rights... thats what I am trying to change...
                          I think ahinson link will do the trick... and the bullet was for me... not the computer...
