Roaming profiles in RDS 2016

Hello
A customer currently has a Server 2016 RDS deployed with Remote Desktop as the principle topography for his organization. We are using UPD's to store user profiles. The client computers are not connected to the domain for historical reasons.
He now wants to join the client computers to the domain and move productivity to these, whilst maintaining the RDS structure for remote access. He wants to enable roaming profiles essentially for user folder redirection so the client machines.

My question, is there are method of using the current UDP's to store the roaming profile data, or do we need to revert to UNC paths to make this work? Will UNC be the better option performance wise?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

I storage and issue? and do you have any sort of 365 setup mainly one drive.
You could set up your environment to take advantage of the Windows known folder part of onedrive.
this can be set up with GPO's.
