apps >> How to Move Terminal Service profiles

I have several TS and the C drive is getting full causing the Server to
crash. I have already moved the page file to a different drive. I'm looking
for some KB article or a way to move the Terminal Service users profile to
the D drive. I have tried creating a roaming profile and I have used the
Terminal Service profile tab in AD.

Thank you

1. Terminal Server Profiles in WIN2003 Terminal Server...moving to WIN2008 Terminal Server

Good morning!

Just a simple, basic question!

Have a client with two WIN2003 Terminal Servers.  I have the TS Lockdown 
thing going (via GPO and loopback processing).  Additionally, we have folder 
redirection for My Documents and for Desktop (can not do App Data for really 
stupid reasons).  Also - and here is part of the question - about to 
implement the Terminal Server specific profile.  Client is going to be 
moving to two WIN2008 Terminal Servers in the near future.

Question: Assuming that I move forward with creating the Terminal 
Server-specific profile this week, how is the Terminal Server specific 
profile going to be affected when we move to the two WIN2008 TS Boxes?

Am I going to see \\servername\tsprofiles$\username.v2?  Read: like when we 
move clients that have roaming profiles (not Terminal Server....just 
"normal" roaming profiles) from Windows XP to Windows Vista or, now, Windows 
7?  This 'username.v2' folder is an entirely new profile......which normally 
is not an issue.  However, in the case of this particular client there are 
some things that we need to do to each profile for things to work (Scanners 
that are attached to the desktop....I believe that RemoteScan is the 
software used....have to copy some files and folders specific to that 
scanning software up to the WINDOWS directory in each user's profile).

I am thinking that it would be better to set up the TS specific profiles 
once the new TS boxes are in place.

Has anyone done this yet?  And can share the experience.  Thanks,

3. Move Terminal Services Profiles to another Volume

When my Terminal Server was intially setup the users were set with 
roaming profiles being stored on the c volume of the terminal server.  I 
am running out of space on that server and would like to change the path 
   to save the profiles on the d volume of the terminal server.  I can't 
seem to find where I would change this and can't find any articles on 
how to do this.  Can anyone point me to information or give me an idea 
on how I can do this?

7. Terminal Services Profile and Profiles


In our organization we have various windows 2000 sp4 
terminal servers. We are using Active Directory and use 
the userprofile path so the users can signon onto 
numerous machines. They have a separate profile path to a 
different server under the terminal services path. The 
problem is when they sign onto the terminal server it 
copies over the user profile path. This creates a problem 
since the users get confused on where they are sign on 
and the terminal services profile it getting large which 
increases the time to log on and off again. We would like 
to keep these two separate. Is this possible? Any help 
will be nice.
