Roaming Profile clashing with TS Profile - 8.May2010 12:22:02 AM

Hi All,

I'm new to this forum so I'll say thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I'm looking after a very small company of 5 employees that are running Win 2003 SBS.  We've been told we must run our Accounting Software via Terminal Services.  No, buying another server is not an option I want to go down.  Being a small company, security is not a concern (plus I can lock down users if I so choose).

That's all been running fine until I created a new user (new employee) that has a roaming profile (to save everything on to the server for backup). 

I've tried to create a TS profile path through Group Policy but it isn't being created.  For anybody  with a local policy, its working fine.

As a test, I even created a testuser that I set to have a roaming profile AND a TS profile and that has created a profile when I've first logged on.

Why is it that the user with the roaming profile is basically ignoring the Group Policy when every other user is using it?  This user seems to be defaulting to the roaming profile rather than creating a separate TS profile.

I need to get this sorted as I'm about to move over all the other users to roaming profiles for the purpose of backup (not running Exchange yet so emails are not being backed up, not good for a multi million dollar small business).

Anybody have any ideas why this thing is causing me hassles?  Everything should be working according to everything I've read (spent over 5 hours reading doco).
