We have a situation where users are setting the local cached option causing us issues with our Server Based Roaming Profiles. i.e. the user will see "out of profile space" messages. We then VNC in and turn local caching off in various locations and perhaps even create a new profile and then all is well once more. Now what we a looking for is a method via AD Policy to prevent local caching in Outlook for certain groups of users.

This is the fix VB-ITS but, I have been scuppered in using it by management, no policy apparently. Could I tailor this for one particular user ?

You can use Group Policy and have this policy only apply to a specific user. To do this, follow the steps in this article: http://www.grouppolicy.biz/2010/05/how-to-apply-a-group-policy-object-to-individual-users-or-computer/

Just to give you the final feedback. After letting me go through this, they now state this morning that they don't want GPO overhead on VPN links and will look at logon scripts and a .PRF file that can create an Outlook Profile correctly but, that is for another question, thanks for you help to date.
