Profile Management Explained

In this part, I will dig into each of the products that we are going to test in this blog series. The three products are, Microsoft Roaming Profiles, Citrix Profile Management and FSLogix. These three products actually hit three different types of profiles, we have the roaming, hybrid and local profile. FSLogix is a local profile, but because of the smart way FSLogix works the actual files and folders in the profiles are save inside of a VHD/VHDX file on a network share.
Let’s get into it 🙂

Microsoft Roaming Profiles

Microsoft roaming profiles is the solution that has been used for the longest time because it has been built into Microsoft Windows Server and desktop operating systems since Windows NT Server 3.1 and Windows 95. Roaming profiles are simple put the normal local profile that is saved on a network share at logoff and loaded from the network share at login. The previous statement isn’t completely true because not everything from the local profile is saved to the network share, only the roaming part of the profile. If we look at the profile for a user we have these folders under the AppData. It is only what is placed in the roaming folder that is saved to the network share in a setup with Microsoft Roaming Profiles.

The settings below are all you can set for roaming profiles in the GPO’s. The setting “Set path for Remote Desktop Services Roaming User Profile” is all you need to set to enable roaming profiles for all servers that the GPO is linked to.
