How do roaming profiles work with Citrix

PMGIT asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have a Citrix farm (Pres 4.0) with 10 W2K3 servers; (we are using the WI for all client acces).  I have the terminal sevices roaming profile group policy in place (with loopback processing enabled), which seems to work well.  My question is this - it appears that when a client is logging in, a profile gets created on the server in which the GP specifies, but ALSO on the actual Citrix server in which they are logged into.  It also appears that the 'local profile' which gets created on the Citrix server itself actually dissappears after the client logs off.  Is this by design, or is there something incredibly wrong with my environment?
