Profiles in Win 2000

By rexb ·
We are migrating to Win 2k (server and pro)this summer at our college and wondering about our options for setting up profiles for students that will be using computer labs. We would like to be able to install software on the workstations and set upshortcuts, etc., that could be accessed by any student using that workstation (they'd each get the same desktop) but students need a profile to load so they can use MS Outlook running off our Exchange server. We do not want to have a massive profile for students that takes 10 minutes to download from the server to the workstation each time they log on to a PC in a lab or class. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

One option would be use a mandatory profile for the users and set it up with your shortcuts, etc. Install Outlook Web Access and have the students use that instead of the full blown Outlook client.

Workstations in different labs will have different software; Web access Outlook won't work in classes where they're learning Outlook/Exchange Server.

I would suggest creating a Manditory Profile and also use Folder Redirection to redirect My Documents, etc. to their home directory. That way the students would have the same desktop anywhere and their personal settings/files would be stored in their home directory and not need to be uload each time.
