    Re: Folder Redirection & Roaming Profiles in Terminal Services

    Another issue you will be having, is the ‘application data’ within the roaming profile downloading from the local server (unless I read that incorrectly and that is stored locally?).
    This can be dragging a lot of unseen profile data across the slow link when logging in, including MS Office templates that are stored in here and opened when you open docs etc, including MS Outlook data too.

    The way we got round it was to take a backup of all user profile data, and relocate to the central site, as this is where the TS sessions are running from, it makes sense for all their data to be located there. Then obviously make all the necessary AD changes to point at the new profiles. Then create seperate Folder Redirection shares for Desktop, My Docs and Application Data and create the appropriate policies.

    Hope that makes sense?

    Visual Kixtart

    Hi,
    There is a program out there that will create Kix Scripts for you. I believe that you have to purchase it, but it’s not very expensive.
    I think it’s called visual kix or something like that.

    Cheers,

    Re: what is DDNS and DNS

    i read about DNS and almost i understand DNS but i didn’t clear concept of DDNS. So pls provide me in detail.

    Ok…let’s start out with the basics. DNS is Dynamic Name resoltuion for network hosts. Be that network you internal work/home network..or the Internet.
    What does that mean in English?
    Computers being the creatures that they are, they can only read numbers (not words). This makes us, the humans, life a little difficult when it comes time to find a computer on the Internet.
    Can you imagine trying to remember to type in 216.239.53.99 instead of http://www.google.com everytime you needed to search for something?
    So DNS was invented to perform this IP Address to Host name resolution for us.

    The only difference between DNS and DDNS is that the latter has the ability to be Dynamically updated by the hosts (if they are Win2k or above).
    DDNS is only for internal networks. It is not out on the internet..this would cause complete Chaos.

    Hope this clears things up for you.
