    Remote Desktop Services - Mandatory Profiles

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! *MIND GOES ON ITS OWN LIL TRIP TO COO-COO LAND!!!*

    Please someone help!!!....Ive never had such a puzzling problem!!....

    Setting up RDS(terminal services) in 2008 R2 and im on the last leg of the setup, im trying to setup Mandatory Profiles for users using group policy....

    EVERY time i logon it loads a temporary profile and the event log says because the location cannot be found....Right, heres what i did!...

    Folder Share + Permissions (FULL)
    Copied a user profile from our current setup & setup a brand new mandatory profile incase i was being stupid!...

    ARGHHHH! lol

    Anybody got any ideas? Ive setup mandatory profiles before and had no problem at all, what i dont want to do is use the terminal services tab in ADUC!...

    HI,

    From what I understand, you cannot use the same profile in TS/RDC as you can on the clients. When you're Windows XP/Vista/7 clients login, they lock the profile, so when the same user tries to login to the RDC server, it cannot access the profile as its already open. You need to setup a different profile for RDC and set the path in AD under the terminal services profile tab.

    But you can set the mandatory profile setting through Group Policy...dont you? I know you can through ADUC but i dont really want to do that for 1200 users...I kno there are tools for bulk modify bt i would prefer to use GPO

    Hi Mart,

    You can indeed... A few things to check:

    1. Network share security - have users who will use the profile got read access? SYSTEM with full control and the Administrators group as the owner?
    2. The TS Roaming Profile Computer GPO is pointed to that network share and the "Use Mandatory Profiles On The Terminal Server" Computer GPO is Enabled.
    3. You've run a gpupdate /force on the TS
    4. How did you set up your mandatory profile in the network share? Did you use the CopyProfile tool and have you renamed NTUSER.DAT -> NTUSER.MAN?

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Just out of interest sake, how are you creating the Mandatory profiles?
    I see that Server 2008 R2 has the "Copy-To" option greyed out (as is it in Windows 7)
    So how did you create the template profile and copy it?
