Win2k single profile per workstation

By joshhansen ·
Next year we are upgrading 500+ workstations from Win95 to Win2kpro. Our desire is for anyone who logs on a workstation to see the same user settings as anyone else who logs onto that workstation (We don't want every workstation to have the same profile, just each workstation having its own profile that everyone who logs onto it will get - kind of like win95/98 without profiles turned on). Is this possible without using ntuser.man?

User profiles are directly tied to user accounts - one profile per account, and as far as I know, no exceptions. The only way you can achieve one profile per workstation is to have the same account logged on at a given workstation, regardless of whois actually using it. This could be a local user account or a domain user account (don't use roaming profiles in this case). To make this more fool-proof, you can set Win 2000 to autologon, so no matter what, the account you want to use is always logged on, even after a reboot. To configue autologon refer to MS Knowledgebase article #Q97597.

You can create a Mandatory Profile that will carry over to each user. This mandatory profile is set once and then assigned to all users in the domain. Each user needs to have their own profile which is used much more in Windows 2000 Professional than the 9X OS.
