Roaming Profiles...


J

Joe

My question is about roaming profiles. We are having a
number of users who do not seem to be writing their
profiles back to the server upon logoff.

Symptom: They delete a file on their desktop and after
the next logon the files that was previously deleted is
back.)

Is there a log file that can be turned on to watch these
users logoff process to see that the process is happening
as it should?

Thanks.

It's easy to check, put a new shortcut on the user's desktop, log off,
then see if it got copied to the server by looking on the server.

Check the event logs on the client box for USERENV errors too.

I hope this "file" is only a shortcut and not a real file?? This may not
be a case of profiles not being "written to the server"; do the tests
above first, then worry about this one later.

Yes, but it's easier to do it manually at this stage.

Are both client and server running Win2k, and does the server have
SYSTEM full control set on all entries of the target profile?

Gerry,

Thanks for the info, but I have already done the
troubleshooting that I can, and I need to have a log
file generated as the next step.

Please advise what the registry setting is for the log
file.

Regards.

Joe
