  • User data keeps appearing under documents and setting on the SBS 2003 server

    Gday all.

    We have a SBS 2003 server with 40 users.

    Recently noticed that some of the users have data/profile under documents and setting on the server.

    If these folders are deleted they "magically" reappear.

    Roaming profiles is not set up.
    There is not much info in these user folders. When checked these folders don't ever appear to be in use.


    Anyone have any clue?


    Cheers

    You say that "roaming profiles is not set up". Have you looked in the "Profile" tab of these users' accounts and checked?

    Failing that, are they actually logging on to the server using Remote Desktop? That is the normal way in which profiles would appear in that particular location.

    If they are, and they're not supposed to, you can disable them from doing so by use of "Local Security Policy - Windows Settings - Security Settings - User Rights... Deny log on locally and Deny logon through terminal services".

        Thanks for the replys.

        The users in question are not able to remote desktop in. (They don't have remote rights)

        Their home directories are local.

        There is no profile path set.


        The user data on the server isn't a complete profile there is only ab out 200k of data there. Its really weird.

        Cheers

          This isnt really causing any problems I just wanted to know why userdata was turning up on the server.

          Looks like I will file this under mysteries of windows

            Can you post a screen-shot to show WHAT folders are actually appearing?

            Do you have any folder redirection policies set up?
