Hi all,

i was trialing romaing profiles on a test account and a test laptop, and im ending the test, so i removed the profile path of the test user from active directory, deleted my romaing profiles GPO run a gpupdate /force on the laptop and then rebooted

after logging back on again as the test user a tempoary profile is loaded everytime and no local profile is even created

ive looked under comp management and the user is there under local account

ive tried everything i can think of and everytime the temp a ccount is loaded, saying "youve been logged on locally as the...etc etc" message

any ideas?
