Volatile cache

Hi all. Just a query on DLU policy.
I've got my DLU policy set to volatile with a cache life of 5 days.

I read this as creating a user profile on the local drive and if the user does not login in for another 5 days then the profile (and files) are deleted.

Who does the deleting? My test users profile is still there after 5 days even after I've logged on to the device.

Cheers

The docs say: This volatile user account is deleted after the expiry of the specified cache period when another DLU user logs out from the device.

I would imagine you have to log in with another user that has a DLU policy associated with it, and then log out. I use cached volatile user for students, and they do get deleted for me. Are you logging in with a local account to check on the profile/user? Try logging in with another DLU.

Re: Volatile cache

Hi
Thanks for the reply

It's about 10 days now and I have logged on and off with other users but the origional test user remains. Both the user, user profile and Documents and settings files. I use the same DLU policy applied to the device and users. Are there are any logs to indicate when a profile is deleted?

I'm not sure having the same policy associated to the user and the device is a good idea. Try just associating with one and see if anything changes. I associate DLU only to the users and it seems to work fine for me.

Re: Volatile cache

I added the registry key per the following document and my volatile profiles are all well!!!!

Internal error 0xFFFFFA27 reported when logging into NDS with NMAS enabled FFFFFA27

Sometimes a user directory does remain until the pc is rebooted.... I had never seen more than two profiles for any user after adding this registry key!!!!

After 10.3 issues, finding this fix made my day much better!!!!

Re: Volatile cache

I will also note that after upgrading to 10.3 in my test environment a volatile user could not log into a workstation after the desktop was locked. I received the -1497 NICI error. Adding this registry key fixed both issues....
