Hi Experts, I am trying, unsuccessfully so far, to configure a GPO to automatically delete local profiles on two terminal servers when thin clients log out. The terminal servers are in their own OU and group. I have enabled and applied the delete cached copies of roaming profiles (Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/User Profiles) to the OU containing the terminal servers. It is Enforced and Security Filtering includes the following groups: Authenticated Users, Terminal Server Computers and Thin Clients. I have also enabled the User Group Policy loopback processing mode and this is also Enforced. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

The problem here when they are logging out you will still have a few files in use, and will continue to be in use until they are completely logged off.

The only way I know how to do this is to setup the server to reboot nightly and setup a script to deleted all the profiles on boot up.
