Hi,

Just noticed an issue with roaming profile users


Some users get the directory created ok eg.

and some users get

incorrect
Ive been having issues with some users favourites and saved app data. The user has full access to this directory,subfolders and files.

Has anyone else had this? or know what is happening?

The users are on vdi so when they logout the computer is refreshed and therefore the profile deleted.

So when they login there is no local profile.

Hi Pilly,

As you mentioned above, users are on vdi and changes are not permanent, then why do you need roaming profile?

What are the operational difficulties in terms of accessing files/folders between the 2 users? Are they both using similar OS theme?

They need favourites, documents and appdata to be saved so its done on the network profile. On logout it updates the network one and then it just wipes the local one on log out.
