Hey folks,

I am working on a small farm, 4 servers, 1 published desktop

Users will generally receive desktop icons that are available on the server and within their desktop profile folder.

One of our servers lost a few desktop icons, so when users log on to that server they do not receive the icons.  What is the proper way to add those icons back so when a user hits that server they get the appropriate icons?  Where are they stored?

can you check  the specific user, see is there any corrupted profile or temp profile creates, if the temp profilecreated try to delete the same to access his profile when he launch app next time. If you see ant .bak profile under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList then delete the same too

where are the icons from?
if the icons are from locally installed apps , add the icons to the "all user desktop" as explained by rhandels.
if the icons are from citrix receiver, the should be refreshed without your assistance.
