SYMPTOMS

In the Active Directory domain, you configure different profile paths for a roaming user profile and for a terminal services profile. When a user logs on to a Windows Vista-based client computer by using a Remote Desktop session, Windows Vista uses the profile path that is defined on the Terminal Services Profile tab to load the profile. However, Windows Vista should use the profile path that is defined on the Profile tab to load the profile.
