Roaming Profile Question. Doesnt let user log off, I want it to stop the user saving all together
Posted on 2003-11-17
I have a win2k server and 8 xp pro workstations.
Roaming profiles is set up correctly (I think) and works very well.
Problem is that I want to limit them saving loads of stuff to their profile, I have set the quotas on the server where they are pulling the profile. The users are all listed in there and set accordingly.
PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN THEY GO OVER THE MAX I HAVE SET, IT DOESNT STOP THEM FROM SAVING STUFF TO THE PROFILE, IT ONLY STOPS THEM FROM LOGGING OFF WITH THE ERROR
"WINDOWS CANNOT UPDATE YOUR ROAMING PROFILE. POSSIBLE CAUSE OF THIS ERROR INCLUDE NETWORK PROBLEMS OR INSUFFICNT SECURITY RIHTS. IF THIS PROBLEM PERSISTS, CONTACT YOUR NETWORK ADMINISTRATOR. DETAIL - THERE IS NOT ENOUGH ROOM ON THE DISK"
That is all nice n all but I want it to error as soon as they go above the 50mb that I have set for them. They WERE all admins on the domain for some fd-up reasonbut i removed those rights, but the only thing that was doing bypassing the quotas all together.
Id love someone to point me in the right direction.
much thanks guys ' n gals :-)
