Microsoft Terminal Server

Formerly TID 2950797


This is a general summary of TID information regarding MS roaming profiles and ZEN DLU.

Currently in order to enable Microsoft Roaming Profiles you must be logging into a domain and disable Workstation Manager.  Also with the 4.6 client there is not a way to set the path to the profile through the client, this is functioning as designed.  You must set up MS roaming profiles through User Manager and specify the path.

As of the 4.3 client you can enable Roaming Profiles through ZenWorks and enabling DLU, or Dynamic Local User.  You must have Workstation Manager enabled on the client in order to enable DLU.
