How can I make a basic user roaming profile into a mandatory profile?


When a user logs on to a computer, he/she creates a local profile which stores its settings in a file called NTUSER.DAT. This file is read/write, allowing the user to modify the profile. By simply changing the file extension from .DAT to .MAN, you will make the profile read only, which makes it a mandatory profile. Jeremy covers this process in Chapter 9 of his book.
