Creating and Managing Group Profiles
Most organizations are arranged into departments. There is a nice benefit in this fact, since usually
most users in a department require the same desktop applications and the same desktop layout. MS
Windows NT4/200x/XP will allow the use of group profiles. A group profile is a profile that is created
first using a template (example) user. Then using the profile migration tool (see above), the profile is
assigned access rights for the user group that needs to be given access to the group profile.
The next step is rather important. Instead of assigning a group profile to users (Using User Manager)
on a “per-user” basis, the group itself is assigned the now modified profile.
