The students all already have an account in a domain, managed by another department (that department runs the "general purpose labs" that all students on campus use). I have permissions to join the computers in the student lab to their domain (in our own OU), but nothing else.
Note: that means I do not have access to the users accounts themselves (ie. no access to Active Directory Computers & Users). This is a key fact to remember....
The folks that run the generic labs don't want the students to use their normal roaming profile when they logon in my lab (says doing that corrupts too many profiles - and frankly, I believe them). Honestly, I'd rather the students use a mandatory profile when they logon in my lab anyway. So....
I followed the directions on http://www.tweakxp.c...ticle37356.aspx to create a mandatory profile on the local machine.
MY PROBLEM IS that I have no way to assign this mandatory profile to the students that logon in my lab. Note that even if I did have access to ADCU on the DC, I wouldn't want to modify the student's profile location - the mandatory profile setting needs to take place ONLY when they logon in my lab. If they goto another lab, they need to get their normal (roaming) profile.
Can this even be done?
.... by me, or do the Admins of the DC need to do it (in a policy)?
