Outlook Roaming Profiles on a Network Share
Posted on 2014-07-15
I have a Linux servers with several shares that are presented through SAMBA to at least 20+ Windows7/8 workstations. All of my users have roaming profiles so they can use any workstation and be able to work with their profiles and files regardless of the workstation they are at.
These users have Outlook 2010/2013 and we use Zimbra connector (as Zimbra is our email provider) The PST (or zimbra files) are in one of these shares.
Several of my users have been experiencing outlook hangs after 20 minutes of not using it; others every two hours or so but it seems to be related to some kind of network communication issue between Outlook and the profile that resides in the share.
We have already recreated the profile and the outlook profile.
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
