Stop local profiles being created
Posted on 2007-04-08
I have 9 Client machines and 1 server running SBS 2003 (clients all running XP). i have about 20 users who all have there own user logon's. I have set up roaming profiles (as far as i can see) but when ever a user logs onto a client machine if they havent used that one before it creates a local folder in C:\Documents and Settings the folders name is the same as their user name and contains - Application Data, Cookies, Favorites, start menu, and desktop (i thought all of this was part of the profile and in the user properties on server i have told it that the profile should be on the server in a folder called profiles and then sub folder for each user). I have also redirected start menu, desktop using a GPO, and to begin with it ised to sycronise at logoff, i made some GPO changes and that appears to of stopped but i think is still happening behind the scenes.
How do i stop local profiles being created for each user and just use the server to hold all info?
