Introduction:

We have an environment which is one server that all users log into.  Once there, the users launch the commonly installed software in one place.  This allows us to maintain the number of concurrent users, the version being the same for all users (since they all use the same one), and thus reduces present and future software version mis-matching.

Question:

How can the new users be configured quickly and still ensure that future users will be able to log into Subset with all the needed connections without having to manually add them?

Environment:
TDM 3.6Subset
Answer:

Please note the Subset profiles are located in the %AppData%\Roaming\Grid-Tools\profiles.xml file. Since all are using the same login to get into all the databases, simply copy the profile that is currently working into the other individual AppData locations for the current users.  This will get all current users up quickly. For future users, have this be one of the files they must copy from a share drive to the AppData for them as you do with other common files.
