Group Policy Fails To Delete Locally Cached Profiles

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Christopher Beard, Jun 28, 2007.

  1. A group policy is supposed to remove locally cached roaming profiles when the
    user logs off. Usually this works, but sometimes if there are temporary
    Internet files with exceptionally long names, the GPO is unable to delete the
    locally cached profiles in this case. When that happens the user cannot log
    on to the computer because of the exceptionally long file name. In order to
    fix this, I have to delete the locally cached profile and then everything
    works OK. Does anyone know how to permanently resolve this issue? Thank you
    ahead of time for your help!

    This is a common problem. Have you checked out the User Profile Hive Cleanup
    Service from MS' download site. This may fix your issue.
