@wrx7m Is that a computer configuration or user configuration policy? Try applying the rules to only non-admins groups.
Yeah, it is at the computer level. I would like to do it via user config but I only want them to apply to users on the RD servers. I need to figure out the proper way to structure AD/GPOs to not screw up everything else.
I am guessing creating another OU as a sub container and move the RD servers into.
Edit: Since it isn't GPP, there isn't any item level targeting, so I can't do it that way.
If you can make those changes directly in the registry, maybe can allow you to use GPP and item level targeting.
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.
When using UPD, is there anyway to access various users profiles' folders and files from the RDS server file system?
Edit: I found that I can path to it via UNC (\ \server\c$\users\Bob\Desktop), but get permissions error when I go locally, from C:\Users\Bob\Desktop. Also, the Bob folder is only a shortcut (LNK file) in the users directory.
That is what I HATE about roaming folders... they simply do not act the same as local folders!
I typically download things to the desktop and execute from there. But when on a system that has a desktop redirected to the server - that fails 99% of the time, I have to move the executable to something actually local, then execute it.
@scottalanmiller Yeah, RDW is the problem I understand now. Basically you can remote desktop without need of App Resources Proxy without any problems. But if you try to load the App Resources from a Windows 10 device then yes I understand now.
Yeah. It's a weird "Essentials only" issue, only on 2012 and older. From what I can tell.
Too bad it is KVM only right now. Not that KVM is bad, it's just early. The have LXC coming "soon" and that will be really awesome. I want VDI on LXC so that we can do it faster and on top of Scale HC3.
That's a new one I have not seen. We used Epicor ERP 10, and in that product I did see issues with RemoteApp where from time to time the user would not have a default printer selected in Epicor (sounds weird, I know), which would then crash any report they tried to print with an error that value of -1 was not allowed. Getting the user to change the printer to something in their list was the workaround.
Thanks for capturing this. I bet it will help someone else and looks to be already doing so.
YEah, that is what happens for this case, the RemoteApp shows the printer as a question mark. Once you go to File, Printer Setup and DoubleClick the printer then it is all good for the printer but all reporting shows in Portrait mode instead of Landscape mode.
