Roaming profiles

by Robert W. In reply to Roaming profiles

In your User Manager choose a particular user you would like to set Roaming Profile for. Under his/her User Properties, click on Profile. Assign a User Profile Path such as \\computername\folder\username *Remember, the user must have at least Change Access to that folder.
You can also call a batch file under Logon Script Name, like filename.bat (this file can exist in your NETLOGON folder, and user must have at least read access to it) ...for mapping drives or assign printer purposes.
Make sure in your profile under Default Computers (Winnt.adm) Under Windows NT User Profiles, Check Del Cashed Copies of Roaming Profiles ... so thier profiles won't clog up your HHD. Hope it'll help some.
