JSI Tip 0298 - Shared server based profiles.

The User Profiles tab in Control Panel / System displays local, roaming, and mandatory user profiles from the %Systemroot%\Profiles directory. This tool cannot show profiles for other paths.

To change who is permitted to use a shared server based profile, Log on to server that hosts the shared profile(s) and edit:


From the Registry menu, click Load Hive and import the shared profile ( \\ServerName\ShareName\ or other extension). When prompted for a key name, type JSIhack. Select JSIhack and use Security / Permissions to add or remove domain users or groups.

When you are finished, Unload Hive from the Registry menu.
