Multiple profiles being created locally on Citrix servers
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have a very strange problem that I've never seen happen before. I have 13 Citrix servers in my farm. 11 of them are full blown servers (HP ProLiant DL360's) and 2 of them are virtual. This problem is ONLY happening on the 2 virtual servers.
Here's the problem: every time users get logged on to one of these 2 servers, it is creating a new profile instead of using the profile that is currently cached locally on the server. For example, if bob is logging on, the first time it creates a profile called "bob"...he logs off and logs back on and this time it creates a new profile called "bob.DOMAIN". I now have 2 profiles for bob sitting there. The next time he logs on it creates a new profiles called "bob.DOMAIN001"...it keeps doing this. This just started last week. As far as I know, no changes have been made to these servers. Again, this is not happening on any of my other 11 servers...only on the 2 vm's.
I've even gone into the local policy (gpedit.msc) and turned on the option to "Delete the cached copy of the profile on logoff" but it doesn't seem to be working.
Someone please help!
