Configuring Roaming User Profiles

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Before you create a roaming user profile, you need to create each user account. Then, log on to a server as an administrator to create a network share to store the roaming user profiles, designate the groups of users to receive the roaming user profiles, and grant all users Full Control permissions.

Use the following procedures when you create and manage roaming user profiles.

Creating Roaming User Profiles

To perform the following procedure, you must be a member of the Account Operators group, Domain Admins group, or the Enterprise Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. For enhanced security, consider using the Runascommand to perform this procedure.

To create a roaming user profile

  1. Open Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. Click the domain and the OU where the user account resides.

  3. Right-click the user account for which to set a roaming profile, and then click Properties.

  4. Click the Profile tab, and then type the profile path information in Profile path. (Use the full path in each user account. For example, type \\Server\ShareName\UserName.)
