I set up two Terminal Server 2008 machines (2008 R1 SP2) and round-robin dns is configured, and also the session broker.

There is an issue such that "quite often" when a user logs off the server, their roaming profile is not updated. I've tested this such that I log in to one server "TS2008-1", make a change such as adding a quick email into outlook, such that the email address is now loaded in the nk2 file. I log off, and then log into the other TS server, but the change isn't there.

When this happens there is a warning event log in the Application Event log when the user logs off. Also, when the event does not happen, then the change I made is there when I log in to the other server.

Windows detected your registry file is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded now. The applications or services that hold your registry file may not function properly afterwards.  

 1 user registry handles leaked from \Registry\User\S-1-5-21-1896136749-2085546218-2665632563-5616:
Process 1232 (\Device\HarddiskVolume1\Windows\System32\svchost.exe) has opened key \REGISTRY\USER\S-1-5-21-1896136749-2085546218-2665632563-5616\Printers\DevModePerUser

I thought this might have do something with a print driver, so I uninstalled all print drivers from the system, the only driver left is the "Terminal Services Easy Print" driver, which seems to re-install itself when a user logs in. Even if it is uninstalled through the "Server Properties" of the printers item in control panel.

I have googled extensively coming up with several articles about printers and group policy settings, but nothing tried seems to work....

Doing a tasklist /svc displays this info for process 1232
