    Unhappy Win7 Mandatory profile problem!!!

    Ive been racking my brains in trying to get this working.

    Ive created a mandatory profile, loaded to the domain, given it the .v2 extension, given the Registry Everyone full rights to the user.dat renamed to user.man. Thought it all seemed to work.

    So I logged on with a user using mapped drives via GPO, all seemed good, went to login on again I got a different desktop and no drive letters, logged off then back on and got the correct desktop and drives. This keeps happening, so every other login I get no mapped drives and a different (standard win7 wallpaper) dekktop.

    All I can find at the moment is that it seems to not like some reg keys unloading when logging off, but otherwise at the moment I am non the wiser and bugging me

    I know people don't like doing it but try the supported sysprep method and see if it behaves any better...

    I know it's not necessarily a solution to your problem, but a lot of these issues go away if you ditch profiles and go with folder redirection.

    Thanks all for the ideas, after a bit more looking into it a GPO setting on the workstations has seemed to resolve the problem, under Admin Templates\User Profiles.

    Good point...

    Admin Templates > System > Group Policy - Turn off local group policy processing (disabled)

    Admin Templates > System > User Profiles - Delete user profiles older than a specified number of days on a system restart (enabled)
