Roaming profiles not updating server 2016
However before going any further, let’s take a few steps back in time.In the good old days in the world of Citrix, with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7, everything was nice and quite in the user profile area.For workarounds, enable a delay before deleting the profile which may help to give whichever process is using NTUSER. Setting a value higher than 40 seconds is highly recommended.Alternatively you could disable the deletion of cached profiles on logoff if you did not need it.Alternatively, it would be fine as well if the server profile would be deleted immediately and the update process be prevented once.Or to put it differently: How can we ensure a specific user will receive a new, clean profile when he logs himself in the regkey, it is a per-machine configuration setting valid for all users logging on to your terminal servers, and thus probably undesirable.There is a search box that you can use if looking for a specific fault.
Occasionally, it is necessary to delete some of them, for example because of corruption or to test something. We'd like to be able to delete a profile at any time, though.
If we shortly revisit the good old times, we didn’t upgrade the user profiles when we migrated from Windows XP to Windows 7 or from Windows 7 to Windows 8 or Windows 10, did we?
I sure didn’t and when is comes to traditional profile management I always recommend to do a profile migration NOT an upgrade!
The use of profiles across different versions of OS is not supported by Microsoft and may cause undesirable behaviour.
It is therefore recommended that profiles covering different Operating Systems are maintained separately and not used across versions.Is it possible to configure that a profile is not updated on the profile server when a user logs out, but deleted instead?
