hi,

how would i go about storing an active directory users profile on a server rather than on a local machine?

I know about roaming profiles and don't want to use that method.

is there another way to do this like installing the file server role on a server?

thanks

Profiles are not actually stored in Active Directory, they can be stored on file shares on servers that are members of the domain.

This is known as a roaming profile. Not sure what other option you were considering for central profile storage. If you want to centralize documents only, you can do so via a GPO, folder redirection.
