What is the best way to ensure user profiles are cleared off xenapp servers on logoff as we have a few servers which just don't delete profiles and users end up with for example James, James.001, james002. Mostly it seems to be Microsoft crypturl folder staying behind.
a. What is best way to recreate profiles for affected users
b. How do we ensure these issues don't keep happening as we currently use Citrix profile manager which i thought prevented this type of thing

Which version of UPM are you using? The best practices for V2.0 are here: http://support.citrix.com/article/ctx119036

Have you also configured the (normal AD) group policy to remove profiles at logoff?

Not running on VMware? http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX122501

Check this awesome article..

Also I wrote a script that runs nightly using delprof2.exe to clean up the leftovers that windows does not clean up due to locks and such things.

This thing is awesome for cleaning up the leftover trash.

There are two policies to delete user profiles at logoff ... the general AD policy and one within Citrix Profile Mgmt.  Make sure you've enabled the latter.
