Roaming Profiles

By whitney597 ·
Accidently closed my question from before...

Maybe someone has some ideas for me. We have some people in our company that use roaming profiles. The problem I am having is that the cached copies of the roaming profiles are not being deleted from the hard drive, thus the hard drives become full and I have to go and delete all the cached profiles. We use a system policy and the box is checked to delete the roaming cache. Also I have checked the winlogon registry key and the DeleteRoamingCache is set to 1.
I have tried stopping some 3rd party services (ie. norton antivirus) and adding a registry key in System/current control set/control called TerminateProcessTimeout. We thought this was working, but it seems more like an intermittent problem. Some people log on and the profile deletes, other people log on and it does not.
Any ideas are appreciated.

Roaming Profiles

we need some more inon your setup, such as SP versions, and whether you are using intranetware client (nw cliewnt 4.11a was notorious for this sort of behaviour).

Profiles should only be created if the user does not have one already, this suggests that the users are not recognised by the PC as being the same people - ensure that the w/stations are members of the domain if NT, and if its intranetware client, upgrade to the most recent version.

Another possibility is to delete the profilesusing a login script.

hope this helps -
