Making an image that I have to roll out, I want all domain users to have the same settings as a local account that I've got on the box I'm taking the image from. Running on server 2008 functional level, mostly xp clients, a few w7 clients but we're talking about xp mainly here. User's will not have roaming profiles.
When I say I want the same settings for each user who logs in I mean the same options on the start menu, same number of programs visible, same system properties settings (same visual effect settings), same ie8 settings (google search, no favourites or menu bar etc), everything!
Would also like to know about options with mandatory profiles, although I don't know how restrictive that is since these users need to be able to save to the desktop.
I don't mind how this is achieved, be that registry edits and or a mix or local machine and domain group policy.
I've looked for guides on this but have only found bit's and pieces, all a bit confusing, not sure that you can do the whole lot in a global sense?
Any info much appreciated, thanks.
