Global Roaming Profile

    Question

  • I have a server and about 20+ users configured under Domain and have around 5-6 applications. Suppose I want to ensure that the users can login from any desktops / laptops using their profiles which will have Applications, Data which will be stored on the server without anything saved locally. What will be best possible solution to achieve this?

  • Hi,
    You could use ADAC to deploy roaming profile on user accounts, please refer to detail steps from: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649079%28v=ws.11%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
    And you could enable Delete cached copies of roaming profiles policy in a GPO under Computer Configuration\ Administrative Templates\ System\ User Profiles to store data locally.
    Roaming profiles reside on a network server. By default, when users with roaming profiles log off, the system also saves a copy of their roaming profile on the hard drive of the computer they are using in case the server that stores the roaming profile is unavailable when the user logs on again. The local copy is also used when the remote copy of the roaming user profile is slow to load. If you enable this policy setting, any local copies of the user's roaming profile are deleted when the user logs off. The roaming profile still remains on the network server that stores it.
    Best regards,
