Multiple desktop profiles created through group policy and roaming profiles.

Hello,

I created a group policy in an OU called XenApp servers. I moved all the servers in this OU. the group policy I created is to only apply to this OU. When a user logs in it creates multiple profiles under documents and settings such as

test
test.domain
test.domain.001
test.domain.002

Why does it do this?

thanks

several causes:
1)
There is a group policy setting to delete cached copies of roaming profiles at log off,  check this setting
@ Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/User Profiles

2)
If the location of the roaming profile is not reachable at logoff it will remain
3)
there is a service patch to fix this as well User hive profile cleanup.

Hi,

I have checked all three cases

1) I have
                   Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/User Profiles set to enable.  Should I disable it?
2) The location of the roaming profile is being duplicated and also on the server itself
ex: citrix servers test1,test2,test3 and romaing profile goes to fs1 server. It creates a duplicate profile in both locations.
3) I have user profile cleanup installed on all4 servers.

It should stay enabled, sorry those didnt help.

I know its stating the obvious but maybe check the paths in account properties for typo's
can also check the user profile environment variable when the user is logged in and permissions on the folder share storeing it both folder(NTFS) and share permissions as well as ownership.
