Configuring Profile Roaming Data

Scenarios

Configure profile roaming data on the AD domain server by setting group policies.

Profile roaming data is user configuration data stored on file systems. Profile roaming data enables users to work in the same environment when they switch between shared desktops or access remote applications using any terminal. You must configure profile roaming data based on environment requirements.

Prerequisites
  • You have logged in to the AD domain server as an administrator.
  • You have obtained a reliable file system, such as network attached storage (NAS), and created the directory where the roaming configuration files are to be stored on the file system, for example, 192.168.1.11\profile.
  • The server where a file system locates must be able to communicate with the user network and the network where the AD domain server locates.
Data

Table 3-2 lists the data to be obtained.

Table 3-2 Data to be obtained

Parameter

Description

Example Value

Path for Roaming User Profile

Indicates the directory where roaming configuration files are stored on a file system.

192.168.1.11\profile

Procedure
NOTE:

In application virtualization scenarios, user data is stored on the server by default. After the profile roaming function is configured, user data is stored in the shared directory, and users can access data in the shared directory when they log in from different places.

  1. On the active AD server, choose Start > Run, enter gpmc.msc, and click OK.

    The Group Policy Management window is displayed.

  2. Select the name of the newly created APS server group policy by following instructions provided in Configuring RDS Licensing and Security Policies, for example, SBCGRP, right-click, and choose Edit from the shortcut menu.

    The Group Policy management Editor page is displayed.

  3. In the navigation tree, choose Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Profiles.
  4. In the right pane, right-click Set path for Remote Desktop Services Roaming User Profile in the Profiles area and choose Edit from the shortcut menu.

    The Set path for Remote Desktop Services Roaming User Profile dialog box is displayed.

  5. Configure the configuration file path, for example, 192.168.1.11\profile, and click OK. See Figure 3-1.

    Figure 3-1 Set path for Remote Desktop Services Roaming User Profile
    NOTE:

    The configuration file path must be planned on the file system, and sharing rights have been set for the file path to ensure that users have read and write permission on the file path.

Configuring Personalized User Data

Scenarios
In the application virtualization scenario, configure personalized user data on the AD domain server by configuring the folder redirection function or a web disk.
  • Folder redirection: A folder path is redirected to a new location, which can be a folder path on a local computer or a shared directory on the network. Users can process files stored on file servers like on local drives.

    Figure 3-2 shows the folder redirection scope. You can customize folders as required.

    Figure 3-2 Folder redirection scope
    Advantages of folder redirection:
    • Improves performance of roaming user configuration files. Directories with folder redirection configured do not need to be downloaded or uploaded during user login or logout, improving login and logout efficiency.
    • Improves user experience. When a user logs in to different computers, the user can view the same documents.
    • Manages space properly. Disk quota can be set to limit the space of user folders.
  • Web disk: Personalized data is stored in a specified shared folder on a file system. The shared folder is mounted to user VMs as a web disk. When users do no t have fixed databases and personalized data needs to be stored, web disks are recommended.

    After a web disk is mounted, a user can directly access the web disk after logging in to the shared desktop. Alternatively, after logging in to an application, the user can click Save as or Open and select the web disk to operate a file.

    After a web disk is mounted, a user can access the same files on the web disk when logging in to different computers.

Prerequisites
  • You have logged in to the AD domain server as an administrator.
  • You have obtained a reliable file system, such as network attached storage (NAS), and have created a directory for storing folder redirection data on the file system, for example, 192.168.1.11\FolderRedirection.
  • You have obtained a reliable file system, such as NAS, and have created a directory for storing web disk data on the file system, for example, 192.168.1.11\NetworkDisk\.
  • The server where a file system locates must be able to communicate with the user network and the network where the AD domain server locates.
Data

Table 3-3 lists the data to be obtained.

Parameter

Description

Example Value

Folder redirection data

Root Path

Indicates the shared folder path on a file system.

\\192.168.1.11\FolderRedirection

Web disk data

Web Disk Path

Indicates the shared path of web disks.

The format is \\File system path\%username%.

\\192.168.1.11\NetworkDisk\

Procedure

Configure the folder redirection function.

The following uses the AD domain server running Windows Server 2012 R2 as an example.

  1. On the active AD server, choose Start > Run, enter gpmc.msc, and click OK.

    The Group Policy Management window is displayed.

  2. Select the name of the newly created APS server group policy by following instructions provided in Create the APS server group policies, for example, SBCGRP, right-click, and choose Edit from the shortcut menu.

    The Group Policy management Editor page is displayed.

  3. In the navigation tree, choose Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy. In the right pane, double-click Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode in the Group Policy area, as shown in Figure 3-3.

    Figure 3-3 Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode policy

    The Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode dialog box is displayed.

  4. Set the mode as shown in Figure 3-4 and click OK.

    Figure 3-4 Configure user Group Policy loopback processing mode

  5. In the navigation tree, choose User Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Folder Redirection and perform the following steps to configure the folder redirection function based on application scenarios and requirements.
  6. Configure folder redirection for AppData(Roaming), Desktop, Start Munu, Documents, Favorites, Contacts, Downloads, Links, Searches, and Saved Games folders.

    The following uses the AppData(Roaming) folder as an example. Perform the following steps for each folder.

  3. In the dialog box that is displayed, click the Profile tab.
  4. Set the web disk path and click OK, as shown in Figure 3-7.

    NOTE:
    • The web disk path format is \\File system path\%username%, for example, \\192.168.1.11\NetworkDisk\%username%. \\192.168.1.11\NetworkDisk\ indicates the sharing path of a web disk, and %username% is automatically set based on the username.
    • Ensure that users have read and write permission on the file system path.
    • After the web disk is configured, only authorized users can access the web disk. Other users, including the administrator, cannot access the web disk. In consideration of security, you must control rights on the web disk.
