Terminal Server won't create Roaming Profile

I am pulling my hair out over this!

I've created a share for separate TS Profiles and in Active Directory, you can set the group policy to store profiles on this specified share. Now when I go to login as a user, the profile is still created locally or pulled from their workstation roaming profile (we still have a few of those floating around). Shouldn't it be creating a NEW profile on the share that I specified?

Have you checked the workstations are pulling the updated GPO? Do you have a single GPO, or more than one in use on the domain?

I have one general one, and then there's one that just points all the workstations to the WSUS Server. The terminal services config is edited under the general domain GPO.

Can you do a GPRESULT from the workstations to verify the GPO is being applied properly.

Also may want to try a general, low-impact change elsewhere in the GPO to see if the workstations are pulling it down without issue.

sorry, I was thinking network switches. For instance, you can set up rules in your switches that will block certain types of packets. You can create one rule that says "if it is not in a set of these types, then block it" and no matter what, that packet/frame is not getting through. Check with the administrators of the network for the first three layers and see if anyone is blocking the tcp/udp port that you need.

I have inherited the duty of network administrator. Long story short, I'm consulting for a business that broke off from another larger business, but the larger network is still theirs.

Do you know by any chance what port it is? I can check the firewall tomorrow. In fact I have to clean out all the old VPNs and such anyway so it will be perfect to check.
