Cached roaming profiles automatically deleted

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.group_policy (More info?)

Situation:
150 users logon to more than 10 different machines.
Roaming profiles are configured.
Domain functional level = W2K
Clients = XP SP1
New company policy = Remove all roaming profiles and configure them locally
on all different machines.
Current config:
Local cached roaming profiles are deleted after logoff.
Domain policy: Computer Configuration\Administrative
Templates\System\Logon\delete cached copies of roaming profiles -> Not
configured
Local policy: computer configuration\Administrative
templates\system\userprofiels\delete cached copies of roaming profiles ->
Disabled
!cached local roaming profiles are still deleted after logoff!
Way forward:
Leave the cached local profiles on the computers and reconfigure the profile
in AD.
Questions:
What other policies could force the deletion of the cached local profile?
Any other ideas to reconfigure the profiles locally instead of leaving the
cached roaming profiles and reconfigure the profile in AD?

Thanks,

Greg

    Hi,

    If you take away roaming profiles from the Users Profiles tab then
    they will logon creating a Local Profile. As local profiles aren’t
    deleted on logoff anywhere (only roaming ones) they should be fine.
    The only other thing to delete them would be a startup script. I have
    one setup to remove all profiles on restart.

    Local profiles may cause you a lot of headaches because users won’t
    have consistency across the computers.

    There is one more GPO to check in Default Domain or Computer -
    Computers Configuration - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local
    Policies - Security Options - "Interactive Logon - Number of previous
    logons to cache". I set mine to 0 to delete all roaming profiles.

    Cheers,

    Lara
