Moving user profile disks in a 2012 R2 RDS environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a situation whereby we have deployed a 2012 R2 RDS environment utilizing user profile disks.

    Everything has been good so far, except I stored the UPD's on a share on the the DC, so I'm seeing intermittent AD issues due to the NIC on the DC being throttled.

    I have deployed a new VM specifically for the purpose of holding the UPD's, however I don't know (and cant seem to find) a straight answer to whether or not I can just move these puppies and get away with it.

    I assumed the process would be copy the .vhdx files from the source location to the destination, share the new location, then edit the collection settings in RDS changing the 'location' value under 'User Profile Disks', however nowhere seems to be able to tell me this with any degree of certainty.

    I have read articles which suggested people have seen permissions errors and such like with UPD's which got me a bit itchy, as this is a production environment.

    Any suggestions/advice appriciated.
