On a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, a mandatory user profile is not deleted when the “Delete cached copies of roaming profiles” Group Policy setting is enabled

Consider the following scenario:

  • In a network environment, you enable the Delete cached copies of roaming profiles Group Policy setting in a particular domain.
  • In this domain, you configure some user accounts to use a mandatory user profile.
  • You log on to the domain by using a user account that uses the mandatory user profile from a client computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You log off the computer.

However, if you log on to the domain from this client computer by using any other user account, you notice that the mandatory user profile is not deleted from the %SystemDrive%\Users directory as expected.

Note: This issue does not occur on a client computer that is running Windows XP.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
