    Multiply existing Server-User-Profile

    Is there any way to create a User-Profile in a new Server-Client environement (2008, 2012, 2016), do all the mappings, settings, etc. and then to multiply that User01 and create automatically identical additional profiles, exept the username and password (User02, User03, User04, etc.)?

    Thanx for any hint!

    Drive mapping, except home drives, should be done in group policy or via login script.

    cheers, Paul

    You want to set up a default profile for the domain. I can't remember all the details because I only do this once when the profile format changes (Windows 7's .v2, WIndows 10's .v5 and .v6 profiles) but start by looking at
    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../Hh825135.aspx

    Once you have a default profile you put it in \\<domain>\NETLOGON\Default Profile.v6 (or .v2, .v5) and then domain users that do not already have a local or roaming profile will copy it on first login.

    Note, this is only the settings that would normally be in a roaming profile. With Windows 10 not everything roams because Microsoft has decided that you wouldn't want your Start menu settings to follow you from one standard configuration to another. You can, to a certain extent, customise things through some runonce scripts in the default profile.

    Creating the users themselves is fairly simple in PowerShell. If you're running Exchange create them through the New-Mailbox commandlet so your get the mailbox at the same time. Otherwise use New-ADUser.
