I want to configure my Windows Server 2008 servers like this. A user logs on, they load a profile that has been configured for that server and no changes can be made to the profile.
I want to do this is with a mandatory profile, and 2 policies: "Use mandatory profiles on the RD Session Host server" and "Set path for Remote Desktop Services User Profile"
So for each server, I log on, create a profile, save it as a mandatory profile, enable both policies, and in "Set path for Remote Desktop Services User Profile" I set the path to the previously saved mandatory profile.
I've tested this, and it doesn't work. When I log on to the server using RDP, it loads the local default profile. When I log off it saves the profile in the usual location, C:\Users, and I can make changes which are then saved to the profile. It's as if the policy setting hasn't been applied, but when I view rsop I can see that the policy IS applied. There are no errors when logging on or in event viewer.
Can anyone offer any ideas why it's not working?
