How Do you enable user profiles on diffe

By aidanod ·
Scenario

A very simple network.

1 X NT 4 Server
2 X Windows98 client computers

Client computer number1 is a dedicated MS OFFICE machine
Client computer number2 is a dedicated Graphics machine running photoshop
etc.

I want to enable User Profiles in a mandatory way.

Problem.

When Joe logs in to computer1 everything seems ok and works BUT......

When Joe logs in to computer2 he gets desktop shortcuts that point to Word,
Excel, Poweroint etc.(which don't reside on this computer)

Then when he logs in to computer1 again he gets shortcuts to Photoshop
(which again doesn't reside on this computer)

Thus causing me calls as to why the computer isn't working!!

I can test for which computer is logging on by using %computername% in my
login script
but HOW do I get the correct shortcuts and desktop to come down with the
user profile?

If I use User manager I can only export One profile.

I have been struggling with this one for ages so if anyone can
help !PLEASE HELP!

On the win98 systems use the desktop management tool to create a default profile for Joe or a default profile for everyone.

Oops forgot you will find a profile Icon in the control panel if the desktop management tools are installed.

first of all are you using local, roaming, or mandatory profiles? There are a few ways you can do this. One is to just get the shortcuts out of the users profile under desktop and add the shortcuts to the all users\desktop. another is have the logon script use the if command. Have it look for specific things like if exist C:\program files\microsoft office\ goto office
I can give you more specifics with more info.

Good Luck
