the logon script is applied by the GPO, not the user account.
Yes, our old environment was setup with roaming profiles that are configured 
within each user account to point to \\servername\profiles$\%username% and 
because roaming profiles are awful in general, I built the new environment 
using the flex profile kit with roaming profiles turned off within the GPO.
I will try to delete the local profile, and let you know what happens.  I am 
assuming that it won't make a difference, but we'll see.
Thanks for staying with this!

Is the logon script applied by GPO or user account?  Were these profiles 
roaming at one point?  As in, the current local cache is still using the cache 
of the roaming?  If so, what happens if you delete the profile?

        this one is driving me nuts.

        Now that you mention it Joe, redirection policies are applied the first 
time and then not touched again unlesst hey change.  That may be why it's not 
being removed properly.  It's the login scrip that is confusing because the 
login scripts are typically part of the GPO itself when specified in a gpo.  
         
        But you make a valid point about the same profile, I would use GPO to 
specify a completely separate profile for the other OU.  then you eliminate 
this problem altogether.

                You're using the same TS Profile for the other servers, but not 
the same Redirection Policies?  Somehow, that doesn't make sense.  Does the 
other OU have its own set of policies?   As far as I know, GPO settings are not 
unapplied when a user logs off so some settings may be saved in their profile.

                Hello -

                 

                I have a GPO that contains user and computer settings for a 
group of users being applied to Citrix servers running 2003 that are in a 
certain OU within our Active Directory.  Within this policy are folder 
redirection settings for appdata, my docs, desktop, and start menu.  Their is 
also a logon script that is set to run in the policy as well. 

                 

                The problem is that when a user logs onto a different terminal 
server that is not in this OU, they get their folders redirected and the logon 
script is running as well.  I do not know why?  It shouldn't....? 

                 

                Also, if I am logged onto one of these other servers that 
shouldn't apply the policy, I am running RSOP.msc and it doesn't show any of 
the settings from my GPO being applied? 

                 

                I am baffled.

                 

                Any ideas why this might be happening?

                 

                ...hopefully it is just friday and I am overlooking something 
simple.

                 

                Thanks!
