[gptalk] Re: GPO setting to delete profiles after logging off

There is nothing native in Group Policy that would allow you to do this,
but you should be able to create an ADM that sets the following registry
value and it should do the trick. Just keep in mind this is not a
"policy" setting, so unlinking the GPO will not make the setting revert
to what it was.

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet
Settin-gs\Cache\Persistent=0

 

See the following link for more details:

Sorta connected to original topic, I'd like to flush IE Cache each time
a user logs off. Any pointers?

Understand, its no biggie. I hate it when the rant gets off the subject
also.

Thanks for the help and reference to documents.

Yeah, I know. Sorry, I didn't mean to come across as rude. I was just
saying that if you need more help with auto profile generation you might
look in another newsgroup.

I was asking the question in reference to Group Policy.

Office Custom Installation Wizard should help you generate a .prf you
can use to automatically setup a MAPI profile for Outlook.

 

Here are some links to get you started:

 

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/ork2003/HA011402581033.aspx

http://www.outlook-tips.net/howto/prf.htm

 

If you have any more questions you might find another newsgroup where
you can get more focused experience in this arena, as this is strictly
Group Policy related issues.

With the below in mind, I know there is a way to automatically configure
a users Outlook profile each time they log on without administrator
intervention. Can anyone point me in the right direction to view
documents on how to do this?

 

Thanks.

If you set up roaming profiles for them then you can use this policy to
delete them automatically when they logoff:

Computer Config\Admin Templates\System\User Profiles\Delete cached
copies of roaming profiles

 

Otherwise delprof is your best bet.

I don't think there is any GPO setting, but there is a nice little
utility called delprof.exe (a MS resource kit tool) that you could
schedule to run each night. It should do the trick for you.

Subject: [gptalk] GPO setting to delete profiles after logging off

 

I am setting up a lab machine, but I don't want the student profiles to
remain o nthe comptuer once they log in because, it could potentially
fill up the hard drive.

 

Is there a set GPO setting that would allow me to do this?
