Just curious, when you chose UPD, did you choose to store all settings or just certain folders?
Some applications don't play nicely with roaming profiles.
UPDs mount at the usual C:\Users\user.name and the applications can't tell a difference.
Right. But, only when the user is logged in. After they logout, that path doesn't exist. I am trying to figure out how to work around that for adding the custom (for each user) erp shortcut on their desktop in their session.
Add the shortcut to C:\Users\Public\Desktop.
That way it will always show up on each user Desktop.
This would be nice and easy, but each user has a custom shortcut- It has a workstation ID in the target path.
No - User accounts are 'left' so that is connection to the AD / DC is lost, then the user can still log on.
That's not totally true, all profiles files are left, that doesn't mean you can still login to it necessarily. There's no process for AD to talk to the local computer to tell it the user was removed. It is just a directory service, The local computer has to request to login to the account. There is no method AD to tell computers anything changed without them requesting.
