When I implemented DA I had to stop roaming profiles to keep the logon time short. Unfortunately I have been asked about slow link detection as a solution and found that the DA clients didn't recognise the slow link. From the few posts I saw on this it "looks" like Slow link detection of profiles is not supported. Can someone tell me if this is the case or is their a work around?
We are experiencing the same problem. Slow link detection however is not an option for us. This is because we still require that the machines are able to process GP updates etc.
Settings which aren't enabled with slow link detection:
The settings that are not downloaded when a slow link is detected include the following:
- Disk Quota
- Folder Redirection
- Software Installation
- Wireless Network (IEEE 802.11) Policies
- Wired Network (IEEE 802.3) Policies
- Internet Explorer Maintenance Extension
See if any of these are an issue for you and then try slow link detection.
Another potential cause of the problem is if the profile is still carry old XP profile information. Try creating a user account with roaming profile which has only ever logged onto WIndows 7 or WIndows 8; this article explains it in more detail:
Hi there - this has been and is a known issue with DA. I have a few links which discuss the issues and may require some testing frst to see if it resolves your issues with profiles.

Roaming Profiles are a no-go for DirectAccess.
If you are exceptable to have roaming profiles but 'not' roam them while using DirectAccess. Then you should add your Roaming Profiles on a seperate File Server and make an excemption for the hostname in the NRPT. Or just configure the firewall on the File Server to block all traffic. I know, not fancy, but it is a kind of a work-around.
