    Strange Log Off Issue

    Got a bit of a weird one here.

    Have a problem with machines not logging off properly. They hang for around 20 mins and then log off. Its not affecting all machines but the problem is increasing. If I logon on locally then all is fine. There are no scripts running at logoff as that was my first thought.

    Anything in eventlogs of the workstation? Not storing huge files on their desktops or anything?

    I have checked the logs and there is nothing out of the ordinary there and there are no huge files on the desktops.

    What OS are the clients running?

    Do any scripts run at logoff?

    Is there a dialog box when they're logging off?

    Clients are windows XP SP2 connecting to a 2K3 server. There are no dialog boxes coming up when they log off.

    Re: Strange Log Off Issue

    Any logoff scripts running or any tasks running in the system tray?

    As I said earlier there are no logoff scripts running and nothing in the system tray in hanging. This beginning to really bug me now as everything is checking out okay.

    Re: Strange Log Off Issue

    Is this affecting all users / systems or just a few?

    Any changes to them recently?

    Have you tried with a user that has no roaming user profile and resides in the default users container so no policies apply?

    We had a problem with broken dns recently but that was fixed. All the users use mandatory profiles and those have been checked and are fine.

    Re: Strange Log Off Issue

    Are the profiles of the affected users massively large? Is it taking ages to save the profile back to your server?

    Re: Strange Log Off Issue

    The profiles aren't huge but one thing I have noticed is that when I log off there are no problems and that it seems to be confined to the students and staff.
