Domain Guests is great, BUT the profile is not saved back to the server if this is set. So don't do it on roaming profiles, otherwise you'll get complaints.
I've been having hard time trying to explain what "profile" means to teachers. They assign a number on laptop so student will return back to certain laptop to retrieve their files. It is a headache for them to keep up with which laptop go to whom. I need to figure out a way to explain why students have their OWN home drive, networked to a server and that students can log in ANYWHERE as long as they kept their files on H: drive. Is there any article on Internet that introduces a non-technical audience to Windows profile and how they are different to network drive? I find explaining "A-B-C" of basic computer jargons very difficult.
As far as my teachers and students are concerned, nothing is stored on any computer and everything is stored on the servers. I demonstrate this by showing them that they can't see the C: drive in My Computer because 'it isn't there' (I know ) If the computer/laptop they are using can't talk to the servers, they can't access their files. I don't mention profiles and it's generally understood that anyone can log on anywhere... except the office because the computers there are different.
The office computers aren't different, but it keeps the office staff happy!
This worked a treat thank you very much.
We do not use domains and use Novell networking as our network os. Has anyone else moved to Zen10 and run into this same problem? How were you able to delete the profile crumbs?

Just be careful and dont apply the script to laptops and machines with local profiles or you will not be popular.
We run a startup script to clear the machine of profiles - that way they are saved to the server at log off but don't clog the machine.
No problem - pretty sure I found it on the web (here?) and amended it accordingly. Just amend as necessary where I've put notes (REM) and save as a batch file and run as a startup script.
Code:@echo off c: cd\ cd "c:\Documents and Settings\" REM Path to where profiles are on the local machine dir *.* /b /o:d > \dirs.txt for /f "tokens=*" %%a in (\dirs.txt) do call :DelFiles "%%a" del \dirs.txt exit /b :DelFiles %1 set Flag=0 if %1=="All Users" set Flag=1 REM Don't delete All Users profile if %1=="Administrator" set Flag=1 REM Don't delete Administrator profile if "%Flag%"=="0" ( cd %1 attrib *.* -r /s cd.. rem change rd %1 /s /q rem for no confirmation rd %1 /s /q )

I'm trying to implement profile deletion using the local guests account. I have added the students group to the local guest account. The student profile that is created is a temp profile, but the temp profile is not being deleted at logoff. We are not using Roaming Profiles. Any ideas why the temp profile is not being deleted? Thanks
