[THIN] Re: Problems with cloned MetaFrame server.

Well, that is basically what I did.  I used SYSPREP 1.1 to create my
image.  I set the services to manual, and deleted the INI file in the
root of the system volume, and I did remove the SERVER from MF20.DSN.

I don't know why the My Documents folder keeps appearing, and I don't
know why the profiles aren't working.

I may end up calling Microsoft for assistance.

I know that the drives were remapped (Q, R, S) and I ran DRIVEREMAP.EXE
after mini-setup completed.  But, I remapped them back to the original
values, and DRIVEREMAP completed without issue.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Chris

It sounds like you did not use acceptable practices when ghosting the XP
System.  XP is not as forgiving as 1.8

To ghost XP follow these steps:
STAGE 1 - PREPARE BASE IMAGE AND GHOST
1.  Install the base OS
2.  Do not add server to domain (stay in workgroup)
3.  Install XP
4.  Configure IMA
5.  If your IMA is Oracle or SQL then edit mf20.dsn and remove The line
that reads WSID=YOURSEVERNAME 6.  Delete the wfname.ini file from root
7.  Stop IMA Service 8.  Set IMA to Manual 9.  If running Resource
Manager delete both files in the Root\Citrix\Citrix Resource
Manager\LocalDB 10.  Install apps but don't publish them 11.  Sysprep
server 11.  Image the server 12.  Deploy image

STAGE 2 - IMAGE NEW SERVER AND POST CONFIG
1.  Make sure system is not attached to network
2.  Turn newly imaged system on
3.  Configure new IP and servername
4.  Reboot system and plug network cable back in
5.  Add server to domain - reboot
6.  Start IMA Service - set to automatic
7.  Run qfarm from command prompt to verify all looks well
8.  Configure zone memberships

Thanks.

Does anyone know how or why the My Documents folder opens every time a
user logs into their session?  It only happens on the cloned server, and
not the other servers in the farm.

Also, do you know what would cause the domain login script to run twice
at the same time?  You will see the CMD window open twice at the bottom
each running the logging script.

Cloned server is Windows 2000 Advanced Server, Service Pack 3.  Citrix
MetaFrame Xpe FR2/SP2, but only at FR1 level.

Master image server is the same build.  I also used Symantec Ghost 7.5
Corporate Edition.

Thanks,

Chris
