Odd Profile Issue
Help Please! :-)
I'm building a nice new Windows 7/2008 network.
I've set up my new network, added a new user and given them a roaming profile. The roaming profile happily creates itself.
I have then used folder redirection to redirect several folders back to the roaming profile, instead of them being downloaded every time a user logs on.
When I log in I am seeing 2 folders for each and every redirected folder - one seems to be the local profile version, one the redirected version. Both merge on logout, but obviously this will be very confusing to the users.
Am I missing something?
I've never heard of anyone doing it quite that way before. What I consider to be the 'normal' practice is to redirect the folders to a location completely separate from the profile, i.e.
If you do it this way, the 'local' versions in the profile are then completely redundant and can simply be deleted so that only 1 shows up (I do this at login so that the user never has an opportunity to save anything there).
Thought I might be trying something a little 'different'!
My current XP/2003 build works differently, mandatory profiles for all with folder redirection to a different share - I'm trying to see If I can keep everything the profile though!
I don't want to use mandatory profiles again - I work in a special school and would like to be able to edit individual profiles for the specific needs of our students.
