How to create roaming user profile ?

We can create roaming profile in 2 different way depends on our need.

1. From Active directory users and computers.

2. From Group policy.

But for both process we need to have a shared location where profiles need to save. And also securing shared location we need to change security permission.

For shared location we create a folder named Roaming profile then right click to the folder name and click on properties.

ROM_P1

Click on Advanced Sharing.

ROM_P2

Check Share this folder check box. Then click on Permissions.

ROM_P3

Add Authenticated user and domain admins or domain users + domain admins

ROM_P4

Remove everyone.

ROM_P5

Give domain admins Full Control and authenticated/domain users user Change + Read permissions.

ROM_P6

ROM_P7

Again right click to the folder name and click on properties.

ROM_P8

Go to Security tab. Then click Advanced.

ROM_P9

Click on Disable Inheritance.

ROM_P10

ROM_P11

Then click OK.

ROM_P12

1. From Active directory users and computers.

ROM_P13

Go to Profile tab in profile path give the shared location with %username% (Here \\dc\roaming Profile\%username%) then click ok.

ROM_P14

2. From Group policy.

Go to group policy management console. Create a new GPO then right click and click Edit.

Enable Set roaming profile path for all users logging into this computer and provide the shared location with %username% (Here \\dc\roaming Profile\%username%) then click OK.

    Hi Mithun,
    Thank you for sharing this.
    However, I am receiving an error saying if there is a way to deploy the Roaming profiles using Group Policy.

    Hi !
    I am stuck with this roaming profile. Please any one had problems like, if you putting path manually (opening user in AD and entering path for user profile location) all works fine. When I am enabling GPO with the exactly same path, wont work at all. Only user folder creating n share path, but nothing inside this folder, all “Profile folders” staying locally on PC.. Domain Windows 2016, user host Windows 10.
    Thanks !
