JDE.INI on Terminal Server

I am trying to modify the default user JDE.INI on Terminal Server so that the logs for each user go to their own profile directory.

The Standard line in JDE.INI is
JobFile=c:\wtsrv\profiles\jde\windows\jde.log

I need to change this to be
JobFile=c:\wtsrv\profiles\usersprofile\windows\jde.log

I have tried to use the standard %USERPROFILE% to set this but it does not work.

I would rather not have to do this manually for each user that is added.

I hope someone can help

It's not very easy to use variables in the jde.ini to map a users home
directory. You can however use UNC and mapped drives. In order to get around
this we mapped a drive letter in the users login script using net use
Y=\\Servername\%USERNAME%. In the JDE.INI we set the Output=Y:. On the
server we created a individual directory for each user and changed the
permission on each directory so only they could accesss it. We did this for
all of our Fat clients and Thin Client users to reduce network traffic and
stop the PDF's fromcluttering up the Workstations.

There is a line in the jde.ini:

WTSLogs=FALSE

If you change it to TRUE both logs will be directed to the users' directory, their INI file will reflect this change and this entry will be changed back to the original WTSLogs=FALSE. All this happens the next time the user signs on.

I did not try changing the base JDE.INI. i have only used it to modify individual JDE.INI's but i think it will work the same way.

Set WTSLogs=True in the jde.ini
