NT profiles copied to novell vol unexpectedly

This is a strange issue. We have a few w2k pc's that copy favorites,
application data, desktop, cookies, and start menu automatically the user's
home directory on the novell server. It is like they have roaming profiles
in an nt domain. The problem is we can not find what is making this occur
and this is filing up the sys volume as their user directories are located
there. They all have at least 4.90 for a client.

Any ideas? Anyone seen this behavior before?

Roaming profiles are not a NT Domain thing. If you enable roaming
profiles, this is what will happen in a Netware environment.

Re: NT profiles copied to novell vol unexpectedly

but connecting in and looking at the profiles...they show local.
I saw this behavior years ago on a 98se and never figured it out. Replaced
the machine and it never happened
again.

Any registry hacks to look for?
