I suggest you read this thread started by ZeroHour when he started to migrate his network over last year. Lots of useful advice in there: Windows 7 Gotchas/Tips/FYI
Having to run a mixed environment for a while - win 7 and XP.
After messing around with mandatory profiles for win 7 decided it would be best to have no profile at all and redirect everything through group policy.
Have tried this with a test user and seems ok on XP machines as well (we had mandatory profiles before) - but just worried I am going to run into some issues somewhere - can anyone advise on potential pitfalls?
ive got a schoolwhere ive done exactly that and apart from ending up with docs and settings/users full of junk ive had no particular issues (odd things like reg code for spex and the code for numicon v1 but nothing that cant be sorted with gpp/scripts/reg hacks)
tbh im tempted just to give everyone roaming profiles (keeping full redirects) cant see them taking up that much (<10gb) server space as it does appear to make logins faster
thanks for help with this - have tried users with no profiles and seems ok on xp and win 7 - bit more testing to do before I try it on one year group - will also look at roaming profiles to see what logon times are like.
We use XP with no profiles here. Had huge problems with profiles on roaming before, and none at all now (obviously). Doesn't seem to affect login speed really, although we use VDI here (XenDesk) so the desktops are pretty quick anyway.
