What problems do you have with sims? There shouldnt be any....
Also do you use exchange? If so you could use this to configure outlook for users on every logon. - RichProfile

Mandatory profiles should indeed work fine for sims, so i think we need specifics there.
Personally for outlook we use an outlook.prf file with our outlook shorts pointing to: "/importprf \\domain.local\Global\outlook.prf" at the end of the shortcut, global being a domain file share. Works fine for teachers and students who are both on mandatory profiles, i think it only needed one small change when we switched from outlook 2003 + exchange 2003 to exchange 2010 + outlook 2010 too
Customize Outlook profiles by using an Outlook Profile (PRF) file
hummmm ok i will have to give that ago tomoz i really want to crack this as it has been on my cards to do for some time.... the outlook thing said it couldnt start or something but i will give the outlook thing a try and the sims thing it says unable to set role or looks like its trying to update it self.
no its windows xp yea i will try and get a screen shot i have spoken to sims about it and they said aslong as it can write to the my documents folder should be ok
I tried for days to get outlook playing nice with mandatory profiles but it never worked.
In the end I gave up and just removed the roaming profile from their AD account so it remembers the settings on each local computer they log on to.
Fixed every profile issue overnight.
Students use mandatory but they use webmail.
for SIMS updates, staff will need full access to the SIMS folder AND the sims.ini in c:\windows I seem to recall from past experience
