I have  terminal servers runing Citrix Metaframe on them. However, I had to create a local profiles for all the users (400) because the network is too slow for roaming profiles.  This local profiles are getting large since it create one each time the users log on to the servers. Is there a script or something I can do, anything, to clean up these profiles daily.  Urgetly in need of an answer.


Thanks,

There is a registry key of which can be deployed to all users which specifies which parts of the profiles will be transmitted to the server upon roaming.

Although you said that you were not roaming the profiles, it may stop the size increase if you stop some of the following. Tempary Internet Files, History, Cookies, Desktop etc..

I am trying to locate the relevant Microsoft Q number.

I will pop that up in a while.

Okay I've found it.

This way you should be able to use Roaming Profiles, which as you know are much more manageable.

The Q number is Q188692 This uses a new string value of ExcludeProfileDirs in the Winlogon section of the users workstation.

If applied, with the correct Service Pack (SP4) it will prevent many larger dir's from roaming. I have used this solution more than once and it increases your performance of logon/logoff a great deal.

This site you listed did not resolved my problem. However, I think it is good to know there are those issues to worry about as well.  I think my problem is related to routing. I need to find away to make this server think as a router. I think at present it is not forwarding the packets at all to the LAN.
