Forcing only Local profiles




I want my moble users to only use local profile when loggin into their
laptop even when t is docked ( attached to the LAN) MS advocates enabling
the Group policy setting "ONLY ALLOW LOCAL USER PROFILES"
Computer Configuration\Admin templates\system\user profiles
So, I have enabled this setting ....but when the laptop is attachedto the
network and a domain user logs in ..they still get their domain roaming user
profile downloaded to the laptop .... It would appear this policy setting
would specifically stop this ( as per Microsoft's expert explaination) but
for me it isnt doing it ....any ideas ?? thanks

Are you setting this from GPEDIT on the machine, or via your domain's Group Policies. When connecting to a Domain, the domain's policies override local policies.
