I have asked similar questions in the past, but I am still unclear to the best method.
Windows XP workstations on a Windows server 2003 domain.
My goal: Have one user account "lab" that shares a profile. I want to make changes to one profile and have it replicate to all computers. Thus far, I am using a roaming profile to accomplish this. I am able to copy a file or create a link on one and when the next person logs in everything is there. Also, I need to use the profile at the same time. I need 20-30 computers to be logged in at the same time using the same username.
I have tried both roaming profiles (with and without folder redirection) and folder redirection by itself.) The main purpose is to share the desktop.
I want to deny access to my documents as well as the ability to change anything. I have changed the profile to a mandatory profile, but it seems the users can save files to the local profile then the local profile copies to the server. I found a setting in group policy to disable merging local profiles to the server.
Summary: Share one username/profile (at the same time) on multiple computers and deny any changes or saving.
