Managing Terminal Services Users with Group Policy

You can use Group Policy to configure Terminal Services user profile information. Group Policy configures these options on a per-computer basis, for easy configuration of all users who connect to a specific computer. For environments where individual user properties are not available to local administrators, using Group Policy provides an alternative to the Terminal Services Extension to Local Users and Groups.


  • You should thoroughly test any changes you make to Group Policy settings before applying them to users or computers. For more information on testing policy settings, see Resultant Set of Policy.

Use the Set path for TS Roaming Profiles setting to configure a network path for Terminal Services user profiles. For more information, see Change a user's Terminal Services profile path.

Use the TS User Home Directory setting to configure a local or network path as the root of the home directory for Terminal Services users. For more information, see Change the path to a user's home directory.

For more information about Terminal Services profiles, see Terminal Services Profile.

For general information about using Terminal Server Group Policy, see Configuring Terminal Services with Group Policy.
