Windows .V2 profile problem


  • Hello again!

    I ran into an issue this morning with our Windows Server 2008 R2 terminal servers and related user profiles. Here's a little background on the setup:

    User AD roaming profile points to \\server\profiles\%username% & home folder points to \\server\hd\%username%

    User AD remote desktop profile points to \\server\profiles\%username% & home folder points to \\server\hd\%username%

    I checked the location where the user profiles are stored and for a while, most of them were showing username.domain.v2 and working perfectly fine. This morning however, when the users logged in, it created a folder called username.v2. I checked with a few people in the IT industry & also checked this forum and found that the username.v2 profile is normal for Windows Vista & later profiles. My question is, how come the profiles were showing as username.domain.v2 instead of username.v2?

    I apologize in advance if my problem & question sound vague.

  • Hi,

    It is by design that username.domain.v2 indicates it is a rds roaming profile and username.v2 indicates it is a AD roaming profile.
