Citrix user not getting a complete profile

Posted on 2014-03-23

Last Modified: 2014-03-24
When this user logs on to Citrix she has to set up Outlook every time. I look on the "user" folders on Citrix and she doesn't have one.  

Her other desktop settings are correct.

This is the second time this users profile has gotten corrupted.

First, how do the fix the existing problem?
Second, what would cause a single user to have this problem?

did you checked her user profile in all the citrix servers. May on some server it got corrupted and try to delete the same to fix the problem. Also if possible try delete the profile in share server too and try to create one. To fix permanently you better plan to use citrix profile management. Tool helps you to logoff users profile gracefully when users logoff the session.

Is the user a domain guest instead of domain user?  In Win2k8, profile is deleted for domain guests.

We have two Citrix servers.  She has no folder on either.  I don't understand/know how to do this?  Also if possible try delete the profile in share server too and try to create one.

I'll read the articles

Yes she is a domain user

Have either of you installed the User Profile manager?  I've watched the Urbanpenguin video twice and when I get the editing the Default Domain policy, I don't have a Citrix folder in Administrative Templates.
Any ideas?

you have to add the .adm file provided with the UPM to manage the UPM with AD GPO.
Installed UPM many times and solved many problems (with corrupted user-profiles also)

I figured it out yesterday from a good article.  I just ran the UpmConfigCheck.ps1 on the Citrix server I installed Profile manager on and it states the user store path is not set.  So apparently the GPO isn't working.  See attached screen shots and let me know if you see anything I missed.

possible the settings are not active...
run "gpresult -r" on a cmd prompt.
the output shows you if the gpo is used.

btw: the settings are used from the device/terminalserver ... not the user.
so the configuration has to bound to the server-ou
