User Environment Issue - Temporary Internet Files, Windows cannot copy file, Mandatory User Profiles
Posted on 2006-03-23
Im experiencing an irritating problem somehow relating to 'Temporary Internet Files' upon user login.
I have a number of workstations running Win2000Pro which authenticate to an Active Directory. User Environments are determined by a Mandatory User Profile, with Folder redirection for Desktop, Start Menu, & My Documents.
By default 'Temporary Internet Files' are not copied over to the roaming profile, and yet the error I receive upon login (which, is acheived be Autologon, so you don't actually login it happens automatically) is as follows:
'User Environment' Window
Windows cannot copy file \\server\......User Profiles\Mandatory\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\....<long filename> to location C:\Documents and Settings\......\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5\....<same long filename>.
Contact your network administrator.
DETAIL - The filename or extension is too long.
And well that's it really, I really can't understand why its trying to do that, Temporary Internet Files should not and be trying to syncronise between client and profile server.
This error prevents login of anytype until I ftp into the workstation and delete the Tempory Internet Files. These workstations are used 24*7 for a clinical purpose, if the workstations are rebooted the chances are that this error with occur and prevent there usage until the cache is deleted.
I have enabled: 'Empty Temporary Internet Files folders when browser is closed' option in the Group Policy but this does not seem to be working even though the appropriate registry settings is confirmed as being made to the workstations.
Your assistance and suggestions are greatly appreitiated URGENTLY !!!
Thanks in advance.
