Annoying problem with cached profile on student laptop
All our staff laptops work fine offline with cached roaming profiles but I have intermittant problems with student ones using mandatory profiles
Some work fine, totally as intended, others just refuse to cache the profile and so load a default on when logging on offline, not applying half the policy settings and giving kids access to virtually everything, plus no customised start menu.
Both student and staff laptops use the same computer GPO - basically just turning on offline files which is disabled on school computers. Nothing set higher up to delete cached profiles on logoff or anything, it just seems the mandatory one refuses to cache sometimes
Settings on the profile share are to 'All files/folders users open will eb available offline'
Students have read and execute access to the folder
Tried removing and re-adding the laptop to the domain, no difference.
Im sure if I re-imaged it, it would probably be sorted but its a PITA machine in that it was supplied by someone else and is totally different from any other laptop in the school...oh and the kid needs to use it every other lesson so I only get the occasional hour to look at it
Any ideas? Just to add, nothing is being stored in C:\Documents & Settings for that user, no folder at all. Anyone else logs on, it seems ok
Edit: just tried with another student account and it does the same. So it is the laptop. I think
