Internet Explorer settings not loaded using roaming profiles

We have two Windows 2003 Terminal Servers.  When users log on to TS1,using roaming profiles,  the settings they have made are loaded as would be expected.   When they log on to TS2 the same way, some settings load (eg Wallpaper), but their Internet Explorer 7 settings do not.  In particular, they change their home page while logged in, log off and back in the homepage will be lost.  If they log on to TS1 they will load.

The TSs are both in the same Domain and OU

Are the 'rules and settings' applied via group policy? Than check how are they applied to both servers

After doing more testing I have to rewrite my question.  It is the same realm of stuff though.   If a user has a roaming profile (these users never log on to anything but the TSs) and make changes to IE7 such as setting a new homepage or using multiple tabs with different homepages, during thier session while opening and closing IE7 the settings are stable.   If they log off the TSs are set to delete their profile from Docs and Settings.  If it does this, when they log back on, the homepages and mulitab homepages are lost.   If for some reason the profile is not deleted (haven't figured out why sometimes it doesn't delete it)  the setttings for the homepages are still there.  Likewise users who don't have roaming profiles, who's profile is always kept locally on the TS, will always have their homepages maintained.

Little bit confused here... You have made policy for TS to clear users profile after log off or this happens randomly???

Hi

One of our TS does not always delete the profile on log off.   When I have investigated that I often get the "file in use" error that won't allow it to be deleted (even though the user is completely logged off).  The file in use is usually Usrclass.dat.  It's a random thing.  The only reason I brought it up here is that when that happens, the IE settings are retained because the profile never leaves the server.  That is the same behavior we see with non-roaming profile uses.  They log on, make IE homepage changes, log off and then when they log on the changes are OK.   Its the roamers that have the issue.
