Anyone have issues changing from Roaming profiles to local profiles via GPO: Server 2008R2


  • Want to change from roaming profiles to local profiles (as people rarely sign into other computers). Worried that Server will "Go South" after doing so.  Anyone have experience with this? And how did the transition go?

  • Hi,

    1.Ensure that everyone has logged in at least once on the machine they normally use, and their profile will be cached locally.

    2.Disable or Not configured in domain group policy: Computer Configuration--> Administrative Templates-->System-->user Profiles-->Delete cached copies of roaming profiles

    In my experience, if the 2 steps are finished, there is no issue in the process of changing roaming profile to local profile.

    If you have any other questions, pls let me know.
