Speed up VDI logon by pointing all users to an existing local profile
Is there a way to point all new user logins to an existing local user profile in Windows 7? I want to avoid the process of having the new user's profile being copied from the Default profile so I can speed up login times. We use VMware View in non-persistent mode so when the student logs out the desktop is nuked (kinda like DeepFreeze). Because of this every time the user logs in the Default profile gets copied over and it takes a long time. I do not want to use roaming profiles.
I found a product that does this (ForensIT's User Profile Manager 2.1) but unfortunately it does not do passthrough login from the VMware View Client, the user has to log in there then log into the Windows desktop which is unacceptable.
I've tried using the local group policy named "Set roaming profile path for all users logging onto this computer" to at the local path for an existing profile (ex: C:\Users\setupuser) but that didn't seem to work even though I granted the "Everyone" builtin user full access to it.
