Disable Roming Profiles (Windows Server)

This can be done on a per-user (Users; [User]; User properties; Profile tab; Profile path) or per-machine basis or in the Active Directory GPO. Here are the instructions for the computer policy which I prefer to use as to me in my scenario it is more appropriate to implement via a GPO/per-machine basis:

  1. Open Group Policy Management
  2. Navigate to: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\User Profiles.
  3. Enable “Only allow local user profiles” and “Prevent Roaming Profile Changes from propagating to the server” to disable roaming profiles on this machine or GPO.
