    Having an issue here where I am using roaming user profiles for the domain
    and trying to get terminal server profile paths to work right. I am hiding
    and disabling drives on the TS box with GP and here is where the problem
    begins. Follow this closely:
    User logs in to TS and their profile is used (should be the TS profile).
    User has only drive E available (the rest are hidden with GP)
    User logs off.
    User comes to work the next day and logs in to their local computer (should
    be using the roaming profile).
    Users drives are still missing???
    How are these profiles getting confused???

    It seems that the TS login is still using the roaming profile.

    Appreciate any help.

  2. Hi Mike,

    Thank you for posting here.

    I recommend you to check the TS profile settings on ADU&C. To do so:

    1. Open ADU&C.
    2. Go to domain.ext/MyBusiness/Users/SBSUsers.
    3. Double-click the user that will use the TS server.
    4. Click the Terminal Services Profile tab.
    5. Make sure that you've configured properly profile path for the terminal

    [Note] If you didn't configure this one, the roaming profile will be used.

    More Information:

    In another hand, please make sure that the GP settings should be applied
    directly to the TS server using the GP loopback setting. For more
    information, see:

    I hope the above info helps and we look forward to your update.
