I have a Windows Server 2003 network with XP pro clients. When users logon to the network it copies everything from their home directory on the server to the local machine they are loggin on to. Is this correct? As you can imagine if the profile is large 300mb and there is like 100-150 users logging on simultaneously it is a really strain on the netowrk.
Is this the correct procedure to copy all the work down to the workstation?
If so how can i stop this happening, i thought a feasible solution would be to only logon on to the network and then to access the folders and files when the user neded them. This would reduce the network traffic tremendously.
