Roaming Profile Support

Windows 2000 supports roaming user profiles, which allow certificates to follow users no matter which computer they use to log on. When roaming profiles are enabled, user profiles, including issued certificates and private keys, are stored on the domain controller. The roaming profiles are downloaded to the computer during the logon process for the user. Smart cards also provide roaming capabilities because a user's logon credentials are stored on the smart card. For more information about roaming profiles, see "Introduction to Desktop Management" in this book and Windows 2000 Server Help.
