I have used Portable profiles in environments with up to 1000 users to date.

Rename the INI and use GPOs for configuration it works fine. A few bugs I
have seen are workable. Also works well for migrating roaming profiles to
portable profiles. I still use environment variables for the store path to
suit different Oss (XP Vista 2003 2008 etc)

I use this for XenDesktop and XenApp now by default (licensing permitting.)
The main gotcha is the exclusion of registry settings associated with Group
Policy do not exclude them(The default in the INI file)

The other thing is it does not clone well, I haven't looked into this to
date but will look into it when I get time.


Thanks Peter

Is flex even still out there?  I couldn't find it the other day when I went
looking.  I'll admit, I miss things pretty easily at times.....

the flex profile kit from LoginConsultants will do it.  you would have to do
some script magic but it is nothing that is beyond your skill Jeff.

Ok, here's a good one.  Or at least I think it is.


I'm contracting at a bank that needs to import individual certificates for
users into their store.  Easy enough except the users don't have roaming
profiles and they definitely roam between citrix boxes.  Oh and the profiles
get deleted every night.  Any ideas on how/what to export/import or somehow
save these certs for the users so they don't have to manually accept them
every day?


Hopefully this all makes sense......


If we have to go roaming we will but we are trying to avoid that right now.
