    Can i NOT save changes to a profile?

    I'd like to have the users log in with an open profile (it needs to be open for a couple of bits of software to work) but then when they log off, i don't want them to save the changes to the profile.

    So technically it would be a open profile but they wouldn't be able to save the changes because it's "mandatory".

    Hope this made sense!

    Is there anyway i can do this using a GPO or another way?

    Cheers!

    You need to make a mndatory profile that is shared by all users:

    see the WIKI: http://www.edugeek.net/wiki/index.ph...atory_Profiles

    and

    See this thread: Creating a small mandatory profile

    yeah, i know that. However, what i want to do is have a non-mandatory profile that i can write to during a session and when it logs off it doesn't save what's been changed.

    Cheers, Stawberry.

    I understand that and it's something to look into. Ideally i was looking for a GPO to say 'disable profile saving settings on log off'.

    That's how it works!

    the profile appears to work like any other profile while the user is logged on. However it is not saved back to the server when the user logs off.

    You can write to a mandatory profile during a session. It just doesn't save when you logoff.

    cheers domino, i'll check that out.

    @ amcevoy - there's a licence file off our portal intranet which needs the profile to be open for some reason. Mandatory doesn't suit at all. Drives me mad!

    Very true, but if it doesn't get the licence the site doesn't run properly and i get my hand slapped.

    So what is your setup?

    XP on Active Directory?

    Profile path put in the users properties?

    Yeah. User gets a mandatory profile from AD when logging on to XP machines.

    Other than this bloody portal editor plug in, it's fine. XStandard needs to send and receive a licence apparantly to implement it. For some reason our mandatory profiles stop this, so i created a roaming open profile and it's fine.

    I tried all sorts, including forcing tempory internet files to save to a share and locally, with no luck.

    Can you not use scripts to simulate the send and recieve of the licence file?

    According to the administrators of the site and Xstandard (both of which couldn't help me find the problem / solution that i found!) the server needs to give or grab this file. Especially infuriating when it's a 1k text file
