Roaming Profiles

Postby Metyrion » Tue Sep 12, 2017 2:51 am

Hello Friends,

i am using an TS-453B. Setup a domain und joining with Windows 10 Clients was no problem. Is it possible to use roaming profiles with it or
do i have to setup an Windows Server for that ?

Sorry if this question was already answered.

Thanks and best regards

René

How is this a Qnap question?
Read the documentation on creating roaming profiles

well I guess OP is asking if the domain controller package in the qnap supports roaming profiles...I think it is a valid qnap related question (that I do not have the answer to)

My mistake didn't think it was support
Seems possible for domain controller feature
For user profiles:
• Profile path: Specify the shared folder where the roaming profiles are stored. The path specified can be a shared folder name such as /home or /user1profile, or a UNC path such as \\nas.mydomain.local\home.

in Windows DC you can set user/group policies that would store the profile and some UNC path with a specific folder called %USERPROFILE%

If the QNAP DC implementation does not have that policy, I guess you could set a local group policy with the correct server stored profile location.
