Roaming profiles across sites

By william ·
We have a number of different SBS 2003 domains which are on servers that will be replaced by Server 2008. As part of the process the new servers will be made part of the head office domain and we will create different sites that correspond to the location. A major issue we have come across is being able to restrict roaming profiles, to prevent the profile trying to load across the WAN.

I am trying to work out how to impliment a script/policy that will only allow a user to load a roaming profile if they are authenticating to the server on which the profile is stored. The result I want to achieve is:

*user at Site A logs onto the site A server on a local workstation - roaming profile loads.
*Site A user logs onto the site B server on a site B workstation - roaming profile does not load.

We need to use roaming profiles at the sites because users have to share desks and computers, which means they log onto the first available computer to do their work.

Anyone have any idea on how the achieve this?
