What is the best way to allow users on a LAN to easily sit at a new computer and have all their settings brought in when they sit there? The settings brought in would be:
- Outlook / email settings
- Mapped drives Network Printers Browser
- Application shortcuts needed by the new user
The network is a Windows 2003 Active Directory domain environment The solution would only need to be at one physical location but possibly would be extended to other locations over VPN.
Some possibilities I've considered are roaming profiles, scripting, or virtualization techniques, but I haven't tried any yet and I'm looking for input.
