Roaming Profile Problem, Various Windows 7 Images
In the summer holidays we upgraded from an old RM CC3 network to a brand new HP vanilla solution and its fantastic but we have a big problem with roaming profiles.
We installed 3 different Windows 7 Images onto client machines via a WDS server:
Staff Image - Includes all software including curriculum specificf software i.e Photoshop
Student Image - Office, Plugins and ICT programs
Admin Image - Office 2010, plugins and windows updates only
The problem we are having is if a user logs onto a staff imaged PC then logs onto an admin or student imaged PC, they then get stuck on the 'Welcome' screen for over an hour and the HDD is being hammered. I checked event viewer on a machine once it logged on and it reported an issue with dynamic link librarys and having to install every single one. Im guessing when that user logs on, the PC is installing all the software from the staff image as it all seems to be in the programs list once completed.
Is there a way of stopping this? We use roaming profiles so that users can access outlook etc anywhere in the school but this issue is causing major disruption. Also once the user has this issue, how can i reset their profile so that they can get back onto an admin machine? Is it as easy as deleting their profile from the file server? What data will they lose by doing this?
Hope this all makes sense and any advice welcomed. Its a huge learning curve coming from an RM system but its so much better!
Cheers guys! :D
