If you are only using Folder Redirection then favorites won't get
redirected unless you script out the registry change yourself. I found
that to be problematic when I tried it some time ago.

That's one problem, the other is that I can't get roaming profiles setup
right,  ie bookmarks never carry over, stuff like that.  The little
things
never seem to work.

So your main problem then is that the PST and OST files are not getting
created in the right spot? Have you run a RSOP on those systems to
ensure that is being set?

I have that for remote access, but each user has a powerful computer, so
I
don't want them to go to waste.  Also I don't want to be reliant on the
server so the user could use their computer offline, and where they
don't
have internet.  This is a small deployment (6 computers) fyi

Your best bet might be a terminal services solution. That would give you
everything you want with the added benefit of keeping the user's exact
session state.

I am trying to setup a mix between roaming profiles and folder
redirection.  I currently have the desktop, application data, and my
docs all redirected to seperate folders for each user under a root dir
on the server.

I want it so that if a user forgets to log off, they can still log into
another computer, or the terminal server, and have their same internet
explorer, outlook and other program interfaces (bookmarks and saved
passwords transfer, pop3 email accounts, ect.)

I though of roaming profiles, which would do this, but i don't want the
start menu to roam, since each computer has different software
installed, in addition to the basic office and internet exploroer.

I downloaded the office 2007 adm files, and told it to place the pst and
ost files in the shared application data folder rather than the local
one, but that setting doesn't seem to work.

I have tried the simulation thing in the manager, but no matter how many
times i restart the server and run gpupdate and gpupdate /force on both
the server and the computers, and restart them,  i never can seem to get
all of the settings to work.

How can i do this best, meeting as many criteria as possible.

If there is anyone who knows of a company that does consulting for
something like this, that would be great too.
