    logon not picking up profile... sometimes

    Got an odd one here, we have a generic pupil logon that's tied down tighter than a tight thing. It's got a mandatory profile that's been working fine for at least 3 years now.

    I logged onto a machine this morning with pupil and it totally didn't pick up the profile, rebooted the machine and it did.

    It's done the same on a few other machines in different rooms too and i've got no idea why. No odd entries in the logs, DNS is fine etc.

    Anyone?

    mm...we're under the NGFL rule here, but this is happening to us as of a month ago as well...either part loading, or not loading. I usually go into the drive and junk the stored version, and it kicks back into gear again.

    edit your CPO to not cache locally stored profiles.

    Are you on about the "Delete cached copies of roaming profiles" setting or something different?

    I think he is. Also are offline files disabled on the share that has the mandatory profile?

    Offline files have always been disabled for it and the "Delete cached copies of roaming profiles" setting is set to enabled just like it has been for 3 years.

    Any other ideas?

    No I mean on the share properties not in the GPO settings.

    Sorry, I meant the no cache option has always been selected for the share!

    No more ideas then?

    It's really odd, don't see why it would pick it up sometimes then not the next.

    It's not even like it's in a pattern.

    Machines and servers have all had Symantec AV updates and are up to date with the WSUS server, mind there's not been any WSUS updates in a while.

    Re: logon not picking up profile... sometimes

    I wonder if it's actually a network problem rather than a server or profile problem? Have you tried installing another network card? The other thing to try (if possible) is to move the PC so it uses another ethernet port. Are all the machines in question connected to the same switch?

    Different switches and different network cards. I personally qualified each port on this network and they all exceed the spec for 1000MB.

    Might have a snoop at the traffic when they log on.
