Delete specific user profile on multiple 2003 servers

Hi,
We have a problem where the printing has stopped from an application and we have found that deleting and recreating the service account profile fixes the problem.

Therefore I need to delete a profile called PeakMobile on 180 domain controllers and am looking to be able to script it. Searching EE there have been a few suggestions to use MS delprof which is OK to delete profiles inactive for a certain period, but you cannot specify a specific profile to delete.

Any suggestions?

If you just want to remove the profile and not a local user account you can just script deleting the profile folder.

I found but have not tested this utility that does what you want:

If you want to delete a local account you can use the net user comamnd.

Net User UserName /Delete

Just deleting the folder is NOT the correct way to accomplish this.  There are registry entries that need removing also.

write it yourself to do what you want.
First, make a list of the servers, a simple list in a text file is all you need.
If you are accessing service account profiles then you would need to stop any services using the account first.  You can use sysinternal PSTools to remotely stop the service(s).

Then delete the profile directory ... you could also look to script the removal of the profile info from the registry, if you can get the UID for the account then it should be easy enough.
