How do I get roaming profile to ignore user cookies
Posted on 2007-12-04
More complicated than title implies--
We have kiosks which automatically login using a roaming profile. Using GPO Computer Config|admin templates|system user profiles| we prevent roaming profile changes from propagating to the server, except for one kiosk which we use for setting the single user profile.
Upon login, the kiosks are showing an error-- can't copy the cookies\index.dat file centrally to the
local cookies directory.
If I delete the index.dat file from the roaming profile\cookies directory on the server, the kiosks login fine. But if I logout and in on the one kiosk allowed to propogate to the server, the other kiosks fail with the same error because index.dat is rewritten to the roaming profile\cookies directory.
1. I've deleted all temporary internet files on the workstation that we use to define the roaming profile. The same index.dat file and the other cookie files still get remade on the server when this one workstation logs out. I've searched for this index.dat file on the workstation that is sending the cookies to the roaming profile--- there are index files but not this index.dat file-- which is always exactly the same and the same date (3 weeks old).
2.I thought that the default was that temporary internet files are not written to the roaming profile.
Thanks in advance.
