XP Roaming Profile Clients
Hi all, don't you love roaming profiles?
Right well we have a 2008 R2 system using Roaming profiles. Each student is setup to \\servername\logons$\%username% and the same is for the GPO setting in Computers\User Profiles to point to the same path. Some google sites have suggested that it should be \\servername\logons$\%username%\ (with that extra back slash at the end). I am correct in asuming that Roaming profiles take their settings from GPO and no - pre build profile is required? like the mandatory.
This seems to work well BUT XP clients are having issues, where there is no desktop/start menu/ no GPO settings are copied down.
You can imagine I am pulling my hair out, I have gone through all the settings and cleared out the XP profiles just incase they are causing the problem.
Does anyone have any ideas? we switched from mandatory to roaming because we had the opposite problem where XP clients worked fine but Windows 7 was randomly not working and students were required to log off and back on possibly up to 3-4 times before it worked.
Any help would be great :)
When it goes very slow for XP clients that is when it struggles to properly login. Have done even more testing and one minute it works fine, next problems occur. The slow ones seem to sit there for about 5+ minutes where the ones that work are pretty instant.
