Contingent Roaming Profile Redirection

We are developing a backup data center and I was wondering if there was a
way to automatically redirect a users roaming profile path to another
location if the original roaming profile path becomes unavailable.  I've
found a way to synchronize two servers to keep current copies of profiles on
both servers.  I just need a way to redirect a roaming profile path if the
main server goes down.

Clustering will not work because this will be done over a WAN link.

Thanks,

Chuck

Sounds like you need DFS, distributed file system.  You could map your
rediredction to a dfs share.  Then make a replica on another server.  If one
goes down, then the other would stll have the profile on the share.

1. Outlook Express with AD, Roaming Profiles, and Folder Redirection

Hi All,

I'd like to use Outlook Express with Roming User Profiles and Folder
Redirection, our enviroment is
Win2000 pro. I've successfuly installed Roaming Profiles and Folder
Redirections, the problem is that
Outlook Express will only save the emails on the local systems, unless I
specifically configure the message
folder settings in OE to point to a folder inside the redirected Application
Data folder.

I'd like to know if theres a way to configure user profiles to store OE's
default message folder to be
stored on a network server, without having to go to each workstation and
configure their OE to
point to a redirected folder.
