Deploying Windows Server 2012 Primary Computer Setting

For companies (or homes) using roaming profiles and folder redirection, Microsoft gave you are great new feature in Windows Server 2012 called Primary Computer. This feature hasn’t been talked about that much although it really should have been. The Primary Computer feature allows you to define the primary computer for a user in Active Directory on a user object. Once applied to a user account it prevents the distribution of their roaming profile on non-primary devices and for folder redirection, disables the ability to sync the folders with Offline Files for non-primary devices.
