Credential storage on non Roaming infrastructure

Have an environment with 1000 RDA user that move from machine to machine as their work week progresses. The applications they interface with have ID/passwords. Originally wanted to use ASO. But that depends on Roaming Profiles being active. Unfortunately the infrastructure team has that feature disabled. Instead they provide a NAS subdirectory for each user to use as their Roaming storage (mapped as a Y: Drive).

So we switched to credential storage placing the file on the Y: drive. However there is a problem with the credential store being encrypted with the local Machine ID. As a result when a user switches machines, the creditial store is found but not usable due to the encryption at a local mahine level.

Can I resolve this problem by either:

1) Telling the ASO to use the Y: drive for storage, instead of c:\user\username\appdata\roaming. or

2) Tell the credential manager not to use the local machine id in the encryption. Thus allowing to become a roaming file, stored on Y:

Useful input is appreciated..
