    desktop icons

    Hi

    This is going to sound like pretty stupid question , i've just started working in a primary school and have very little experience using servers.

    I'm running server 2003 with LNM installed on it.

    Basically when students log in to a machine, there are program shortcuts all over the desktop, I've tried deleteting them but the next time a student logs in they re-appear on the desktop. Can anyone help?

    Is this a group policy issue?

    Thanks

    I've not used LNM but if the desktop is re-directed or from a mandatory profile, you will need to delete the shortcuts from the share where they are located. Did that make sense?

    BTW.... thread moved to LNM forum.

    I'm not sure if there is a share or not. But I'll have to look into it.

    Thanks for the help

    Re: desktop icons

    The desktop icons aren't being controlled by LNM. As far as I know (we use it too), LNM can't do that kind of thing. As Ric said, it is likely to be an issue with mandatory profile and using a share for desktop and start menu shortcuts. See if there is a folder called User Common Folders; you may have your server drive partitioned and the D: drive will have this sort of share on. Or do a search on the server for a folder called Start Menus. You will probably find there is one for pupils (may be called Students) and one for teachers, at least.
