Hi Experts,

I test a Windows 7 Enterprise Edition machine with roaming profile in our current Windows server 2003 AD environment. It seems work, create a V2 folder on the file share server and save the profile. The only thing is that it takes long time (5-10 minutes) to log off. It is not acceptable. Is there any ways that I can reduce the log off time?

Thanks a million!

Do you have logoff scripts to process that may need to be adjusted for Windows 7?

Yes., I keep the logoff script which is for Windows XP. The script is really simple and there is no other settings in the GPO. I past it below.

'Disconnect all the network drives
set wshshell = wscript.createobject("wscript.shell")
wshshell.run("NET USE * /delete /y"), , True

Do you think that I need to adjust something for Windows 7?

Thanks!

As far as I know, NET USE support did not change in Windows 7, and I'm not much of a script guy.  From the looks of it, I cannot see why you would need to change anything.  However, I know we got rid of our drive-disconnecte logoff script some time ago by simply adding /persistent:no, which disconnects the drive on logoff anyway.  Just a thought.
