    Roaming profiles question,

    On the staff only users i have set up a profile path for the user that keeps all individual staff profiles Ina folder on the server. I did a couple of theses manually but then run a vb script with %username% and changed them all, so far so good and all is working ok.

    One confusion i have is that in the GPO for staff in User Configuration>Windows Settings> Folder Redirection> Application Data It is also set to redirect the profile.

    Is this correct or do i only need the one way of congiuring it?

    Also the Desktop and My Documents is the same and the user gets a H: drive mapped for their network area.

    I am a little confused.

    I think the My Documents need to be there because if they save in My Documents instead of the their H: drive it automatically puts it in there? (is this right?

    Re: Roaming profiles question,

    Have a good read through the Section on the wiki someone has written for this it is quiete detailed and should help with your understanding some.

    I would say though that if you are using roaming profiles you dont need redirect the application data as well as the roaming profile will keep that data and im told is more reliable in certain applications case. You should however redirect the my docs.
